Again go to the phpMyadmin to access the your database.  Open the database that you created to install WordPress last time. Now open the wp_users table export it as sql file. We will replace this table to the database used for the old WordPress. Well, now open the old database used on the old WordPress and also open the wp_users table. Now drop(delete) the wp_users table from the old database. Now Import the wp_users table what you imported earlier form the new WordPress installation database.
