Then you can either download that, or move it thru SSH to your new server with the scp? command i beleive.

Then you just unpack it when you move it there

Its been a while since i've done it, but that should be the basics right there Good luck.
What he said and if you don't have access just ask your host to do it for you. Don't for your database backups. Anything that is going to take more then 300 seconds via httpd is going to time out as that is the default timeout setting for httpd(apache) time outs. Most likely you wont be able to get your database via phpmyadmin. You will have to do a mysql dump via ssh access. If you don't have ssh access just ask your web host to tar up your dir and do a mysql dumb.
