Move MT2.6-powered website to new host and upgrade to MT 4/MySQL

I have a website that, while not a blog, is powered by Movable Type version 2.6, with a flat database (the Berkely database that MT creates automatically).

The website contains over 300 entries (powered by MT) and a few other static HTML pages. The pages are quite simple, with basic text and images.

I want to move the website to a new host. I need you to:

- Install Movable Type 4 on the new host, with MySQL as the database

- Migrate all the entries, preserving the text formatting and category information (this is very important because the category information determines where the pages show up in the site structure)

- Migrate the MT templates and any remaining static pages outside of MT

- Migrate the images, so that all images show up on the correct pages

The new version of the site should look *exactly*, in every detail, the same as the current live site.

So, all I should have to do is change the domain to point to the new host, and the site visitor will not notice any difference at all -- but on the back-end, I will have a new version of MT and a new hosting solution.

I will make payment by escrow and release it when the new site exactly mirrors the current live site.
