Default Transferring to another host

Hi everyone,
Currently I host my gameservers and my webservers at Hetzner Hosting with CentOS7 as the operating system. I am thinking of transferring to another hosting services. However it's gonna be tiring to do all things over and over again. Is there a way I could have a snapshot myself and then install the snapshot to new host?

I wouldn't do that if I were you. Atleast not a full snapshot, because of links/data to/about system hardware and hostkeys. It's not that hard to set up samp and a webhost from a clean installation. You do might want to backup configuration files.
Alternatively you can follow this: https://www.digitalocean.com/communi...em-preparation
However I find it handier to just use a clean installation (and eventually use some backed up configuration files). It's more fail-proof and is possibly even faster than transfering one system to another.

This doesn't count off course if it's a huge system with alot of data/services.

Try to create a snapshot and download it, and contact sales before ordering a server from them to check if their host allow to boot a custom iso file or not and upload it to them, also take a normal backup of your files/config files as Kwarde said to make sure you have a backup if anything goes wrong.

Samp does not need much Installations. You can do it manually. Its more better.

There's more than just installing dependencies for samp and runnin samp. Think of system configuration, configuration of mysql, eventually phpmyadmin, setting up accounts, the firewall, if multiple users have access eventually chroot jail.

But, your statement is indeed correct. It's just not applicable to the OP's question.

Yes, but make sure you don't restore stuff like this on the new server unless if it's exactly the same (which it isn't, eg. your fstab file. UUID aren't the same):
hostkeys, fstab file, information/configuration files for hardware. You can't just create a full snapshot of the entire system and place it in another one, you can count on trouble if you do that.

Mostly important folders is "/home" in case if you store the servers over there, "/var/www/html" in case of website folder or /home at case of mostly the used on different webhosting panels check if you use different location to store websites data also the panel configurations, "/var/lib/mysql" in case of mysql server, that you should take care of them.
