Most of what you need is accomplished by just moving the lists/listname
directories and their contents. The config.pck (or config.db for pre
2.1) files have the list config and membership information.

See the post at
for more detail. Also, a search of this lists archives should turn up
a lot more.

One other thing not mentioned in the above post. If the domain names
are different on the new server, you will need to run fix_url after
moving the lists. Run bin/fix_url.py for instructions and see
for more info.
