From experience, I know that BackupBuddy does an outstanding job of migrating WordPress Web sites between domains and servers.  But, what if the source server and target server run 2 different operating systems?  For example, if I wanted to migrate a WordPress Web site from any pair of Windows, LINUX or Mac, would BackupBuddy be able to do so without any issues?

Do other steps exist?  Or do other plug-ins that can handle platform migrations exist?

Hello Lyndon,

This wouldn't be a problem. When migrating a site to a new server (any type) you really only need to be concerned with the servers actual configuration. There has been a little trouble in some instances with windows machines and unzipping the backup file, but we have work around for this.

Below is a link the the BackupBuddy Codex Specification portion.
