Ive backed up my db in v9.  

Ive installed the v9 on another computer.

Now I want to restore the db onto the new computer but I get no such option when i run odoo on the new computer.  I just get:

Odoo is up and running. Create a new db by filling out the form, youll be able to install your first app in a minute...

ive tried replacing web/login with web/database/manager but it keeps sending me to this form.

Did you just make an empty database (for example "test") and did you then try it again? Sounds silly, I know...

Ok. I created a test db. Im getting the could not execute lessc error which ill figure out later because i dont have apt get on my mac. But my question is, should I do anything else before restoring my database, like move in my installed modules, or will that get configured when I restore my database?

It is recommended to install all the additional modules in the corresponding addons directory.

So I copy the odoo/addons/ folder first and then I restore the db?
