The moving of database from me.sfong.net was essentially piece of cake because I have practiced the steps before. Still when I finished restoring the database, which was a success, I saw a blank page when browsed the site.
As usual I logged in directly via .../wp-login.php and saved a few settings making sure it wasn't a .htaccess file issue.
I then realized that it was a theme issue because the database has everything in it, i.e. what theme/plugin I activated/used during backup. After I moved it here I didn't have that theme available so WordPress returned nothing. I had to manually activate this theme, no sweat.
