you would need to transfer your database to the new site. If you are you using the same host , juts rewrite your config file in the library directory.

Both of your domains appear to be hosted on the same server so you don't need to do a full server move. Just copy the forum files to the new domain and leave the library/config.php file pointing to the same database. Then update the board URL in the Admin CP:

Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Basic Board Information -> Board URL

If the two sites were on separate servers then you would need to do a full move which is a backup + restore from the old server to the new one:

The posts are stored in the database and should be preserved as long as the library/config.php file points to the same database as before.
