Moving SSC to a New Server

We need to move our instance of SSC to a new VM. The current VM is running Windows Server 2016 and the new one will be running Windows Server 2019. 

The file paths for both instances will be the same as will the version of SSC and Tomcat. 

My question is, how is the best way to move SSC? Can I copy the existing Tomcat directory and move it to the new server? Or should I installed Tomcat on the new server first, then run the SSC Setup Wizard from the new server. 

The database will remain the same, again, this is simply putting the existing application on a new VM, then modifying DNS to point to the new IP address.

Any suggestions or advice for this would be greatly appreciated.
