Its pretty easy.


Download all code and download database.

Just upload thw two to the new server.


If server environment are same then there will be no issues else You might have to do some minor fixing.


Also if its a server that uses some proxy settings like Godaddy do then You will need to change some code that uses CURL.

you will need to adjust your admin/includes/configure.php and catalog/includes/configure.php files to show the correct paths, server details, username and password.
