Moving over a site and its contents


#1

Friends of mine have a website they need a new host for. It will most likely be temporary until they find one on their own.

The site is basically just a forum and its database.

Anyway, I created a new user so they have ftp access.

How do we transfer over the site? Not the domain name, that they will keep registered where it is for now.

I’m still poking through the wiki but not found exactly what I am looking for yet.
