Migrate SharePoint SiteCollections from one farm to another farm using Content Database

SharePoint Site collection can be moved to another farm or location using site collection backups or Content database back up.

If you required only one sitecollection then we can backup site collection using powershell or SharePoint central admin.

in my cases i have 2 site collection in one web application and both are using same content database.

I use Content database method.

Step 1 : backup Content Database from SQL Server.

Step 2: Restore Content database to new SQL Server (new Loction)

Step 3: Mount-SPContentDataBase
if you don't have existing web application please create new web application  and mount your database to web application, it will use the same managed path as you have in original location.

Mount-SPContentDatabase "WSS_Content_MyDB" -DatabaseServer "DEVVMSPDB01\SP2013DB" -WebApplication http://devvmspap01:15734/

SharePoint Database Log file is increase. (Shrink the SharePoint database Log file)

SharePoint Log files are Increase more then database file or some time increased more then it, 
Easy way is to reduce the log size using  Shrink the Log file.

-- Set database to simple

-- 1st parameter is Database Log File name , 2nd parameter is new log Size in MB (100 MB)
DBCC SHRINKFILE (WSS_Conten_MyDB_Log, 100); 

-- Reset the database recovery model to full
