I've a nice set of documents at mySIte1.org that I need to move to MySite2.org. These have a common DNN Host.

It seems this can be done ready simply by zipping up the documents from the 1st site (maintaining the directory structure) and unzipping to the second. I guess I would lose any metadata (authors, upload date) and special permissions and perhaps anything that has been marked for soft or hard deletes, but those aren't too problematic in my case.

Anything else to consider with this approach? Is there an alternative: e.g., a SQL query to change portal 2 to 3 perhaps?

I am running latest version of DMX, and all documents are within DMX.

There is no easy way to port things over. In large part because all of DMX's data is wired to DNN generated IDs for users, roles, etc. These are not the same in the two sites. So the only thing you can do is export (there's a script under Run Scripts) and import (create folder and on folder menu select import).
