Magento doesn’t need much configuration, just move the files and import it’s db, the only place that needs some update is /app/etc/local.xml where database connection setting is stored.

database from the phpmyadmin, it is better if you create the backup from backend
also empty the cache folder and sessions

When you export your data from phpmyadmin, be sure to click on Add DROP TABLE / DROP VIEW if you are sure you won’t to overwrite existing tables
