Something like that would be extremely simple. Heck, I've even moved a
Mediawiki from MySQL to PostgreSQL. The Fedora package does not add any
extra errata versus a vanilla Mediawiki.
(I'll assume you use MySQL)
1. mysqldump -h localhost -u root -p wikidb > wikidb.sql
2. SFTP wikidb.sql and /usr/share/mediawiki/LocalSettings.php to new server.
3. mysql -h localhost -u root -p < wikidb.sql
4. Copy LocalSettings.php to /usr/share/mediawiki
