Migration usually refers to migrating data from a legacy system (custom, some other CMS, old version of Drupal) to your new system. So for example, I'm "migrating" data right now between an old drupal install and a new one on my local dev station.
All you need to do is
- copy all the files to your server, core and modules. Make a tarball of your entire Drupal install (or use git and push to github then go to your server and pull from github, that will work too).
- run cron and clear all caches
- dump your DB to a file
- upload the file to the DB on the server
- adjust file system settings (see Status Report)
You should be good to go.
