[Mediawiki-l] Copy wiki to different domain

Hello all,
            Is there an extension that would help with copying/moving a mw
site to a different domain?
I don't know how easy it would be to copy not just the articles but uploaded
files, such as images, videos.  

What about with regard to SMW?  To export this semantic data and bring it
into the site at the new domain, there would be a need to create and
populate the tables that are specific to smw.  I don't know if this has been
done or not.
If there isn't an extension for this, what would be the process?  I mean
when I first setup my mw site it didn't have smw, so the SMW Bundle was
added later.  I don't know if it would be best to do an install of mw,
(after exporting and saving the db on wiki1) then import the db from wiki1
into the db for wiki2.  This might work since the paths and such in the
config files are based on variables and not absolute paths.
Thanks in advance for any help,
