It's actually quite easy to to as long as you have (more or less) the same configuration on both servers.
1) Create a DB Dump from Server1 and re-create this DB on Server2
2) FTP your Files from Server1 to Server2
3) Change your _config.php on Server2, enter your new DB credentials

4) Maybe you'll have to chmod the assets folder to 777 as well and possibly change the php.ini Settings on Server2.
