    I have WPMU running on a server. If I need to move it to another sever, what are the steps involved?

    If this topic is already discussed in a thread and someone knows of it....can you please link it here?

    Dump the database to a file.
    Zip up the files on the server, ftp them to the new server.
    Unzip files again.
    Feed the sql back into a new MySQL server.
    Configure local Apache and MySQL servers.
    All done.

    You should probably use tar of course if you're working on a Unix box to preserve file permissions!
