In Over My Head Moving to Site from Local Host

I purchased the Powerstore 4 software on Friday. I installed it to a local Xampp host to get the store completely set up before moving it to my live site. It was pretty perfect, I FTP'd the files over and now nothing works. I don't want to create a new database, I want to use the db I created on the local host (though, I don't know how to find it) which has my product pages that I have created and the new theme I created, etc.. Everything I read says to change the user settings in the wa_settings file. It all sounds real simple, except that I have no idea where to go to get wa_settings. Can someone take me through an FTP with Powerstore for Dummies course? I have been up all night and am currently stressed to the point of tears!!!! This software was supposed to make it easy, and I don't feel it has delivered, at this point.

**I might be making some forward progrees (FINALLY!!!!)

I have finally located the MyPhpAdmin and it has all of my new db's. It also has a wa_settings file (Yea!!). Not, I need to know what to change and where to find it. Then, I need to know the easiest way to export those files from the MyPhpAdmin and import them into the root file (if that is the correct place). What format would I use to indicate in the PowerStoreConnection.php the correct database to use. I feel like I am almost there and am seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. Hope it's not a train or St. Peter

Using PHPMyAdmin, you will need to export your database, there are a number of online resources that have tutorials on how to export your database, here is a link to one that I have found:
mysql_export.htm

this tutorial also goes through using the Import function.

Your Host should have a control panel that you can access to create and manage the MySQL Database on your remote site. Access the control panel to create a new database, and then launch PHPMyADMIN from the control panel to manage it, you will need to use the import feature to import the database file that you exported from your local system.

you will now need to edit the Connection/PowerStoreConnection.php file to connect to the remote database sever, the details for this should be available through the hosts control panel, if you need assistance accessing the control panel or finding the connection details, contact the host and they should be able to guide you.

Still in deep water and drowning

I have imported the database, with the help of GoDaddy. I changed the Connections.php to read the correct host name, db name, username and password. Now, when you go to my site, you can see a template store. Nothing that I customized is on my site. In addition to that, when I go to the admin portion to try and just rebuild it, at this point (since I guess I just need to give up), the site will no longer recognize my username or password. Now, I am locked out of my store. Please, advise.
