I've done that and even went further as migrating a /vufind folder (tar cvfz of it) from a Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to a CentOS 6 (adjusting the necessary permissions and ownership and make correct link
of VuFind into Apache), restored the mysql dump and started up just fine (with all the dependencies installed [different flavors between OS]). And the other way around to, I remembered now.
So yes I would say yes to both questions, and for sure the second one: I've done backups of it (/solr/biblio/index/*) and restored them in another machine with the same schema (/solr/biblio/conf/schema.xml)
and it runned just fine (6 millions records just as a reference of the numbers involved).
Hope not saying something that is not true in all possible scenarios... well, that is something no one can guaranties, I suppose (like everything in real, daily life).
Hei, I've done that with ALEPH (migration from v18.01 to v20.01), and if you have it, you know how much can go wrong if everything is not well parametrized. So, well... you have to know exactly
what you are doing and the consequences of each step and how to fix any possible problems as they arise.
All the best and have a nice weekend,
