Port Installation to new server

I have to move my Discourse installation from one server to a new one. I have full access to both servers via SSH Port 22 and forwarded ports 80, I can log-in to the old installation and create a backup.

However, mail does no longer work, so I cannot download the backup because I do not have access to the link sent to my old email. And I cannot change the email address, because the change has to be confirmed from my old email.

Would it be possible to copy the complete docker volume, and where do I find it?

You can grab your backups from /var/discourse/shared

Thanks, found. Does the backup self-contained, or do I have to copy other database stuff to restore the settings?

Everything except settings in your app.yml are contained unless you checked the box in admin to exclude uploads.
