The "database" is just a directory. Are you moving the repository to
another location or machine? If so, you'll just have to move the tree by
hand, otherwise leave it alone. Setting up pserver is the same either
way: <>

You might be able to get away with changing the CVS/Root files, as long
as none of the files on the server have changed. The fool-proof way to
migrate existing sandboxes is to have the users checkout fresh trees
from the server (and then copy any changes to the new tree by hand).
