The moving process goes like this:

  1. Put forum in Read Only
  2. Take a Backup & Download it
  3. Point domain to the new Server
  4. Install and set up discourse on new server
  5. Restore Backup

Note that you can also restore backup from the command line if you wish to skip the setup wizard and initial configuration with the web browser, as well.
