I have a friend that asked me to move her Joomla site to new hosting. Is this a difficult task with Joomla? What are the pitfalls. I've moved WordPress sites many times and know there are lots of issues.

Where's the site going to be moved to? I guess it depends..

It's usually very easy. Just make sure you get EVERYTHING copied.

I've always used Joomlapack (now Akeebabackup - http://www.akeebabackup.com/).

The process is pretty much the same, backup files + database
Upload new files to new host, import database and update config settings (paths etc)

We've moved a few of these sites lately. If you have issues after the move, try clearing the joomla cache and optimizing the mysql database from within PHPmyadmin.
