Offline-Cold Backup Database

1- Take Offline Backup With Rman

SQL> shutdown immediate;
SQL> startup mount;
RMAN> backup database;

2- Take Offline Backup With Copy Data Directory

#> cp /data/ /backup/
Note : this /data/ directory includes data files, control file and redo log files.

Restore Database From Offline-Cold Backup

Install Oracle Software
#> rman target /
rman> set dbid=123124123 //that is your db id. You can find from controlfile backup name, if you use %F contorolfile backup format.
rman> startup nomount force;
rman> restore spfile from ‘controlfilebackup_123124123.ctl’
SQL> create pfile=/tmp/pfile.ora’ from spfile;
#> vi pfile.ora
You have to configure pfile.ora for your new server path and memory. If not exist directories, you have to create.
