You could RSYNC from the server to the destination.

Setup a new server and clone the whole system with rsync, make sure you turn off mysql, redis, http/apache/nginx and other services so that the clone process can go without any error, mentioned is for RHEL OS. In the new server make sure you did installed the same OS as it was in old one, once the clone is completed you restart the new server and edit ips etc if there is another ip new one. On your current server/old one do:

Code:
yum install -y rsync
Create and edit /root/exclude-files.txt and add the following:

/boot
/dev
/tmp
/sys /proc
/backup
/etc/fstab
/etc/mtab
/etc/mdadm.conf
/etc/sysconfig/network*


rsync -vPa -e 'ssh -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no' --exclude-from=/root/exclude-files.txt / DESTINATIONIP:/

I would suggest to take backup of each database in .SQL file and download necessary folders like as httpdocs via rsync/scp

1. Install new server LAMP and other service's what needed
2. Rsync www-data to new server
3. Schedule maintenance window and setup DNS TTL to low like 600s

Optional, you can this point also test that new server working correct with transfered website (like php/.htaccess and other if there something).

When start real transfer:
4. Setup current website maintenance mode
5. Make backup from database
6. Copy database to new server and import that
7. If files also changed, make new RSYNC only modified files.
8. Change DNS record's toi point new server.
9. Test everything working and reopen website.
