You can use the stsadm command line tool from a Command Prompt. This
will allow you to backup the top-level site  and all the information
contained in it.

1) Use stsadm -o backup ....

To create  a backup File.

2) Copy the backup file  to the new server.

3) Use stsadm -o restore ....

command to restore on the new server.

isthere is any other option instead of taking back up ??

Answer #3    Answered By: Kurt Gilbert     Answered On: Aug 28

You can use the

stsadm -o export ... and

stsadm -o import ....

commands. This works on a site  level.

If you want to get more granular, you can develop a feature or a
solution. Bleeker's A Developer's Guide to Windows SharePoint Services
3.0 is a good place to get detailed advice.

Thanks for the plug. Tons of STSADM details is available (some
undocumented gems) in this book:
Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies Administrator's Pocket

Also white paper is available about what you can do with STSADM that
you can download from the Mindsharp Premium Content page for free:
