Transferring your Drupal application consists of copying your files and database and modifying the settings.php file in the sites/default folder.

The most important setting which needs modifying in settings.php is:

db_url - the MySQL details for your Drupal;
the format you should follow is mysql://username:password@localhost/databasename,
for example : $db_url = 'mysql://user_drpl1:password@localhost/user_drpl1';

You should also make sure that the RewriteBase rule in the .htaccess file is correct.
For example, if your Drupal is placed in your account's main public_html folder, the RewriteBase rule should be: RewriteBase /
