By "actual server on a backup of everything on my old computer", you mean a copy of all the files or a disk image?

If so, what's crucial is whether MySQL was running when the copy was made. If it was, odds are that the copy of the data is inconsistent at best.

If not, you can mount that disk image on a computer, run it, g et MySQL running, do a full mysqldump, and there's a portable copy of your databases.
