Migrating to VPS

I’m toying with the idea of moving our setup to a VPS.

I’ve tried the backup/restore module using our current setup and a VM to test migration. I can’t get it to transfer over. Even dragging over all of the templates in backup, and then restoring, I can’t even get so much as our extensions to load in.

Is using all 6 templates appropriate for a migration? Anything else I might be overlooking? Version is the same, but modules have not been loaded into the new VM setup. Hoping we can use backup/restore to help with that.
