publishing from xampp

Tried a couple of hosting services and cant make my site work.

They give me a default wp installation and I try to restore mine. WP restore works mostly fine.
But MySql breaks.

I use a somewhat custom database so I go to the DB admin page and restore my wp database, but that breaks the default wp installation.

I think I am not understanding the import/export.

With wp default export/import and files my site should work? I am fucking it all over by importing the database directly?

Sorry for the question, I am really tired.

Thank you.
