Getting closer on Server issue

Oh I understand that. This server has three sites on it. That is why I need to copy the directories and files from /www out to the new server. I need to copy site available and sites enabled from the the Apache2 directory over. When I copy the /www files and directories over that should get my Wordpress files with three years worth of content over and I think the MySQL database should come as well. Now Question, well I can't see the getting to root info because this bloody typing screen has it covered. But when and how I get to that once I do that will that allow me to copy these files over into the new server install?
