I will be moving domains and have a fairly large DB Disk Space: 2,509.3mb.
I am also upgrading to vBulletin 3.6.(latest release)
What steps do I need to take to make this seamless?

well this all depends on what your doing some more info would help like are you changing domain names cause if so you may need to do multiple steps even tweaking your settings in the settings table.
Moving a database that large though would always require true SSH access to your new server since you would want to upload the database and then use a mysql restore command to restore the database as you would never be able to restore it by hand.

Yes we are moving to a totally new domain. Just trying to get everything in line before it happens.

Once you move everything over you need to edit your config files of both products and replace the server paths and urls with the new correct ones and also modify the settings table of photopost and vb's config table to place the proper url's and server paths in those tables via like phpmyadmin.
