Hello there, export your database as explained here.
Install a new MyBB on the other host, with the images you used to have on the 1st board.
After you have installed the board and imported the exported database, edit ./inc/config.php & inc/settings.php to suit the imported database details.

Your done./

OK, here is the link you need to read:

http://community.mybboard.net/showthread.php?tid=2446

Next, install MyBB again on the new hosting, and upload the entire "images" folder from your previous forum.

You'll also need to restore [Wiki: Database_Restore] (Broken link, head over to docs.mybb.com instead) the database to your new host.

Make sure that your inc/settings.php from your old board also replace the default settings.php.

Well theoretically you don't need to install MyBB again. As long as you have uploaded the MyBB files (don't need /install/) and you restore the database and the inc/config.php and inc/settings.php (updated with new info), MyBB should run as before.

That means you don't have permissions to do that.
