Moodle Issues

Hi there

I am doing some work in a school and they have a moodle server. The moodle server is being moved out of the school and in to a centralised server farm run by the school governing body. I might have an issue now as I had to wipe the old windows server and install the AD from scratch. Now when I try and log on to the Moodle server (which is on a seperate linux machine) I get the following...

LDAP-module cannot connect to any servers:
Server: 'ldap://'
Connection: 'Resource id #47'
Bind result: '

The ip listed is the ip of the old server. Does this mean the the server mentioned was an LDAP server and if so can I create another LDAP so the linux server can connect to?
Or is there a way to take the files off the moodle machine and zip, tar or rar them to the guys who will be setting up the new centralised system?

From the error message it does suggest the authentication mechanism used was LDAP. After taking a tar/gzip of the files, you would also want to take the backup of the database. Here is a link to complete instructions on how to migrate moodle.
