I've never used winscp, but a web search turns up a number of tutorials.

As regards your second question, please provide more information: What Linux distro are you planning to use, what database engine (MariaDB is slowly replacing MySQL as the database engine of choice, but there are also postresql, sqlite, and a number of others) are you looking to use, and what is the database to be used for (e. g., blog, contact information, business records, etc.)?

The more information you provide, the easier it will be for others to help you.

When you say you have to "move a file," what type of file are you referring to?

From a Shot in the Dark Dept.: If it's an *.sql file exported from another instance of MySQL, you don't "move" it. You create a database of the desired name, then import the *.sql file into that database.

Please note, I am by no way a database guy. What I know about MySQL I've learned from managing the database for my blog. I can manage that database okay and bumble through creating basic SQL queries, but don't ask me to create a new database from scratch using command line tools.
