Steps to migrate Bugzilla

Hi All,
We are running Bugzilla(3.6.3) on Ubuntu 9.04 and wanted it to be moved to Bugzilla(4.2.1) on Cent O/S 6. So I fresh installed Bugzilla 4.2.1 on Cent O/S6 and it is working fine.
Since I don't have much knowledge in MySQL I need your help to move Bugzilla from ubuntu to Cent O/S and also clarify these below doubts.

1) Is it possible to move bugzilla from Ubuntu(Bugzilla-3.6.3) to Cent O/S6(Bugzilla 4.2.1)?

2) Does this below command affect anything wrong to our existing Bugzilla server(Ubuntu) while backing up all databases?
mysqldump -u root -pmypass --all-databases > alldatabases.sql
3) There are many project wise Bugzilla folders under /usr/local directory and each directories soft links are created under /var/www/bugzilla folder in current(Ubuntu) Bugzilla server.
So should I copy each Bugzilla related folders from Ubuntu:/usr/local/Bugzilla*_folders to Cent:/usr/local/Bugzilla*_folders and also should I create their soft links to /var/www/html folder in Cent O/S?

It would really be appreciated if you could post the steps to migrate Bugzilla from Ubuntu to CentO/S.

Thanks in advance for you kind help.
