I can take the backup, I can restore the backup to the new server.
Nope. That's the wrong approach as the backup is meant for the original machine only.
the problem is none of the sites works when I open them in the browser
That's expected, as you cannot fully restore a server from merely the backup.
To actually move sites from one machine to another, Microsoft gives you the option of Web Deploy,
