  • Hi Bhakti,

    If you want to move only single subsite then you should use Import / Export feature. But if you are goons take back up of site collection / Farm / Web App then you can use Backup / Restore feature.

    Here is link of Import  /Export.

  • Hi,

    Just creation of web application is not enough, you need to create the same managed path also.

    Then only the contents of your site will be displayed.

    However I suggest you to use STSADM import export fopr the same.

    Here are the steps you can follow for this:

    1. Take STSADM export of the source site.

    2. Create an empty site collection using STSADM createsite command in destination server

    3. Then import the content using STSADM import command.

    I hope this will help you out.
