If the paths are the same (i.e. /Users/colin/data/my_protein exists on
both computers), all you need to do is copy ~/.phenix from the old
computer to the new computer.  This is what I do with my rapidly
accumulating Mac collection.

If the paths are different, for instance if you're moving them from a
laptop to a workstation with NFS drives, you want to use "Import
project" from the Projects menu in the main GUI, and point it to the
directory containing the project you want to import.  It should then
load the old job history and update the stored paths (most of them,
anyway).  It's an imperfect solution (there are some flaws I need to
solve), but it should allow you to reload most saved results and
parameter files.
