Default Move to new server.

I know Its been asked many times before, and answered many times, but thats made it confusing to me.

I found these steps provided by Till

3) Copy the /var/www and /var/vmail directories to the new server. Make sure that you preserve permissions by e.g. using these tar commands:

tar pcfz www.tar.gz /var/www

tar pcfz vmail.tar.gz /var/vmail

4) Move the ispconfig mysql database to the new server and also move all client databases to the new server.
But these are from April 2010, so is this still the way to go?


Updating my server to Debian Squeeze, so here I go again...

If those instructions are still valids, seems to be easily scriptable, right?
