1) Set up PmWiki on the new server. Test to make sure it works!
2) Copy the local/, pub/, uploads/, and wiki.d/ directories from the 
field to the new server.
3) You may need to copy over any cookbook entries or scripts that you 
installed on the farm to the new server.
4) You may need to duplicate some of the local/farmconfig.php entries 
to the local/config.php. This is to carry over farm-wide settings to 
the new wiki.

I think that should do it.
