Centos Server clone to another Server

Hello, I have a remote server which I use for hosting my customers' websites.

The server is on Centos 6.6. I was wondering if there is a way, and which would be the best way, to perfectly clone the remote server to another remote server with better hardware.

Remember that I only have remote access via ssh to both servers, and no way to get physical access to them.

Hmmm... Without having access to at least boot up in "rescue/offline" mode it will be a near impossible thing to do, the closest I can get is using this method.

That method actually requires you to boot into rescue mode.

Isn't there a way to clone all Centos packages and configurations if Centos is installed on both servers?
Zephyr ICTCloud ArchitectCommented:
Yes, as I mentioned, without some downtime on one of the systems I'm not sure it will be feasible, if your partitions are the same at least you could copy over most using the method described in the link above ...

But who knows, someone might have other ideas...

Looking around, I don't think there will be much to do about it...
