I have searched and scanned the first few pages so I apologize if this is covered elsewhere.

I want to transfer a wordpress site hosted by someone else to my 50webs account. I understand how to create a copy of the public html files, but I don't really know the steps necessary to make sure all of the databases transfer. Can someone direct me (or provide) instructions on how to do this?

The other host use CPanel if that matters.

Thanks.

well, usually it quite simple just like moving the other cms systems...CPanel or any Control panel doesn't matter at all because the control panel is only control user/admin access to customer area for the hosting services...but what you need is the requirement for Wordpress like php/mysql etc...and yes, 50webs have it cover and support all wordpress version requirements...

First thing first, make sure that the wordpress versions are the same from the old host and new host, if you haven't upgrade to the latest version of WP, you must perform upgrade BEFORE or AFTER move the host, if you want to upgrade AFTER move then the installation source code must be as same as version on old host, then perform upgrade after everything has been successfully installed and imported...

1) If you haven't done it yet, go to your old CPanel and backup your database, you can use PHPMyAdmin from CPanel to export or backup the old database you want to transfer to your local computer...then download all source code from that account to your local computer...

2) Login to 50Webs Control Panel...
   - Create the database to use with your new WP (if you haven't create one)
   - Login to PHPMyAdmin to your database that you install WP from 50Webs CP, Import the database that you have backup from old host (on step 1)
   - Upload all source code that you download from old host (on step 1) via ftp to 50Webs Server in the right folder that point to your domain/subdomain
   - Now you must edit "wp-config.php" file to the new database information to actual one...
Code:
define('DB_NAME', 'databasename'); // Change the high-lighted part to be your database name
define('DB_USER', 'mysqlusername'); // Change the high-lighted part to be your MySQL username
define('DB_PASSWORD', 'mysqlpassword'); // Change the high-lighted part to be your password
define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value. (This is default 50webs database host, unless you are hosting under 50webs.net server that case your database host name is 50webs.net

Now login to the Wordpress Admin area and use Search and Replace plugin to search all my old WordPress urls in database to be replaced with my new urls.

Finally edit .htaccess in WP root directory...
Code:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.yourdomainname.com/$1 [R=301,L]
Change yourdomainname.com to your actual domain name...

Now check if everything is working correctly....

That should be all...

Please let us know if everything is not go as normal or doesn't work...If you need any assistance to setup for you, you can provide your info via pm, however, you can always ask Support Department for help by open the ticket inside your account...they will gladly help you...I will be stand by here if you need my helps...

Best of lucks my friend...

I'm confused by these 2 steps. Are they necessary if the domain name remains the same (I'm simply changing hosts for an existing domain name)?

I would check to see if things are working but I'm having some other issues too.

well usually it's necessary on those step if the domain is the same...I thought you were transferring different domain to different account...if same domain, then those steps are useless...

what kind of problem you have?

I also have a few different wordpress sites but I am using the free wordpress hosting and now I have decided to choose a web site hosting and then host it there. I am not quite sure how I can transfer those sites to my new web host. Friends told me that most web hosting provider offer to transfer the websites. I will check this because I do not know if I can do it on my own.

actually you have to transfer the site content and script yourself...the only transfer available in all host providers are "domain transfer"..not data...you can provide the tech support to import data for you to database, while you upload the files you have from the old host to 50webs server...usually transfer the data is quite simple...
