Not knowing your network constraints the easiest way is to simply have the administartor open an SSH port for you and you can SCP your dump to the server. I am not that familiar with webmin and I do not know if it has an file upload feature but I doubt it has a remote sql import feature. Have you looked at what webmin has to offer?

I assume your question is asking HOW to get your dump to the physical machine and not HOW to do a mysql import. That is real easy and google will have many hits on that as it is a common question.
