even if the domain name expired, most likely you will be able to access the
site database using the ip address. but just that you have to give / have
permissions to connect from the new domain or ip.
Also, if you can login to the server with ftp, i guess you can ssh / telnet
to server and take a mysql_dump (backup).
You can write a ftp code in php. get all the source code in the old server
and write it in the new server.
