My initial idea was to use another name and IP, but if it's easier and
safer to keep the same name and IP, then it's ok to do that. In this
case, how should I transfer the database? just copying the files using
rsync? (I guess in that case I should use the -X option to maintain
extended attributes, rigtht?)

It would be great if you could do that and give some feedback :)
