Have you imported your old database into the new one?

Have done all of the above, the trouble I am having is the host only allows 50mb upload to db, even with zip I have over 300mb. how can O split db.

1. Contact your host to increase the limits.

2.
  a) upload you .zip to your server ( for example where oxwall is installed)
 b) unpack .zip file
 c) run following command via SSH: /usr/local/bin/mysql -hhostname --user=username -p < filename.sql
 
*Command can be slightly different on your server.

This should upload your 300mb file.
If you are not sure how to use SSH or what is your exact command, I recommend again contacting your host or searching over the web.

do you need cron job for the site to work.

yes james cron must be active and running every min every hour every day

yes but something must work without the cron, So no cron would cause install page to show instead of main page, even thou everything should be ok, except the cron.

check your database and make sure you have data in it.
