Yes, but tell me which Engine you are using?

 for MyISAM its easiest way.. just copy the folder(folder has DBNAME and it contain tables *.MYI,*.MYD,*.frm)

Make sure before copying to any MySQl server make sure the server is down..once copied you can restart server

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.
