How can I migrate a moodle site?

I have three domains registered here. I would like to migrate all of my programs to one domain and let the other two expire.

I have wordpress, moodle, pwigo, and drupal installed. Migrating pwigo and wordpress and drupal do not seem to be a large hassle, but I cannot find any information on migrating moodle. It is also the most complicated program I use.

Is there an (relatively) easy way to move moodle from one of my domains to another? I would like to move it from a subfolder in one domain to a subdomain on another.

For example, is it possible to back up the old moodle in softaculous, then install the new one on the new domain, and finally restore the old moodle in the new moodle?

Any advice would be nice.

Thanks John,
That seems really really complicated. I doubt that it is going to go well. I'll give it a try, though.

If that doesn't work, I'll do a new install and then import what I can, which will probably work, but only partially.
