Sounds like a good idea, I'll get a backup of the /etc just in case I run
into some unforeseen issues.

Hi Jon,

Copying /srv/www and the httpd.conf to the relevant locations on the new 
server should do the trick. 

You may also need settings from other files like your /etc/php5/apache2 
(or the equivalent on your server)  depending on your configuration. If 
you are not running any customised files (PHP5/MYSQL/ETC), then you 
probably don't need to worry.

Personally, I like to take a copy of the complete /etc directory 'just 
in case' whenever I replace a server.
