- Copying of files + database to new location
- Backup of files + database of original destination
- Magento app/etc/local.xml modifications

About the requirements
Note that FTP-access is not sufficient in this service-scope. SSH offers more advanced control over files and folders, and therefor required for this moving service to be effective. This also assumes that the SSH command-line offers basic tools like a MySQL client (whereis mysql) and archiving tools (whereis tar).
Note on the disk quota: Some hosting environments enforce disk quota on the UNIX users used by the webserver. This means that adding more files than the quota allows, is resulting in an error. With the MageBridge Moving Service, we assume that either all disk quota are lifted, or that the disk quota is large enough to transfer files and unpack archives when needed. Having a free space of at least 4Gb is commonly needed.
