Well, I don't have ISPConfig (yet) so this is what I think what needs to be done but be carefull:
Once you have the backup of all ISPConfig related stuff then you must set it up back on the new server. Once ISPConfig is working there, then you can put the backup files back on the new server. Hence extracting the mysql dbs, the mail folders and webfolders. Important thing - in my opinion - is that you keep all the permissions right.
Ok, but how I will get the ISPC-users and groups completely with there passwords placed in the new ISPC that they will work there and which files from ISPC exactly are essential to get the transfer managed?

Maybe Falko or Till have an step by step howto to manage the "I hope never will happend process" only to feel a little bit more secure if I would use ISP an a productive system. I think that's quite importent.

Thats a matter of course. And I would try to play back everything until I will decide to use ISPC productive.
