To create a tarball
you go to the file location using
cd, then you do
tar -cvf example.tar /example
Then to use rsync on a RedHat-based distribution
yum install rsync
or, if you are on Debian-based distribution
apt-get install rsync
then transfer to the new server
rsync -av -e ssh username@oldserverip:/path/to/example.tar /example.tar

tar -xvf example.tar
