Moving Site and DB

I have a site and postgresql db that i set up on 1 server.
i have just created a new ruby server.

does anyone have tutorial on how to move the application to another
server?

is a simple matter of copy the application folder and the db and
moving them?
will i have permission issues etc.

thanks

As long as the new box has everything necessary installed, dumping the
database & copying the application should be enough (Depending on how
the database controls access to it, you may need to recite whatever
incantations are needed to grant a user access to the db.

@frederick - thanks for your help.
i was able to move the app but the database is not that easy.

if anyone here is using postgresql please let me know how i can do
this.
i can shut the old server down to move the files.

read this fredrick but couldn't get it to work.

i don't mean to discuss postgresql in this forum, i was just hoping
that a ruby user here that is using postgresql could quickly lead me
down the right path.

set up is from robby russels postgresql set up instructions.

Anyone using postgresql with Ruby?
