My best way to restore or transfere to an other site is to save the original sw e.g.

And the 3 folders:

assets, themes and mysite.

1. Install the SilerStripe-cms from scratch as you done the first time.
2. Replace asset, themes and mysite folder with your stored one.
3. Run http://<your-new-site>/dev/build
4. Run http://<your-new-site>/index.php?flush=1

And that`s it. At least I was successful with this procedure.

Procedure above works only with the same server. I`ve tried it successful under my PC as localhost.

I´ve tried to transfere my local staff to an internet domain, considering that _config.php in mysite folder is correct,
but I was unsuccessful with that.

So seems there is something missing.
