FAQ 3.4 is a hodge podge of obsolete and newer stuff. See the two
archive posts linked from the second paragraph of the FAQ. Also see

Basically, if your old list's are down, all you need to do for lists is
move the lists/<listname>/config.pck files and run fix_url if any
domain names changed.

For archives, you can move the entire archives/private/ structure, or
if you want to rebuild the archives, see the post linked above.
