You need to take a war file and hot deploy in to tomcat folder (Make sure that your tomcat is in running state ), take a back up of your DB and and export it !!

copy the entire data/ directory, it would not hurt.
Usually if we want to move the entire portal to another VM, which just zip an entire portal installation from the top portal directory and unzip it in a target VM, of course database is to be copied as well.
