Import locally, how to transfer to live site?

I'm half way through my IPB import right now. I'm doing the conversion on my local machine.

Once the conversion is completed and the new database exported, how would I transfer it to my live server? Should I import the database before or after I install Xenforo? Or do I need to initiate the install script at all?

Upload the XenForo files from your local host to your domain (live site).

Create a database on your domain (using the same name, user and password) and import your local host database using phpMyAdmin.

There is no need to run the install script, simply copy everything from your PC to the server.

I edited my post above, you don't need to run the install, just copy everything across.

Incidentally this is how I did it :)

The config.php will be included when you copy the XenForo directory.

Unless you want to use different database details (name, user, password), in which case you will need to edit it.
