Hi, I need another advice from LS master.

Currently all my project/survey is station at the old machine server LS 1.90 +(9522), and last week have installed a new server with LS 1.91 +(11343).

I need some advice: is there any possibility just copy paste the survey folder from the old into new server? And then how to recall all the survey into the new LS?

Many thanks in advance.

There is no "survey" folder where all the surveys are stored. They are in the database. What you could do is to make a copy ("dump") of the old installation, import it via phpmyadmin as a database on the new server and install LS into this database.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

If these are only some very few surveys you can also use export/import to copy them.
Otherwise porting the whole DB will be the better option.

CMIW Maxi, by export/import i am only get the survey structure right, and no respondents data.

1. Correct, export/import only transfers the survey structure. You should be able to use VV export/import to port the results, see docs.limesurvey.org/Exporting+results&st...Export_and_VVImport_

2. Holch meant to port the whole database and after having imported the DB at the new system set the DB details at Limesurvey's config.php to point to the ported DB.
