Search & Replace data in your database with WordPress admin, replace domains/URLs of your WordPress installation.
== Description ==
With Search & Replace you can search for everything and replace this with everything **but before** you do this you can easily **create** a simple **database backup** and restore it.
For avoiding problem please keep in mind that this plugin search and replace strictly what is specified in "Replace With".
Common error example:
Search For: http://web.com/wordpress/
Replace With: http://neuweb.com/wordpress
The url become something like: http://neuweb.com/wordpresscontent/...
Correct "Replace with":
Search For: http://web.com/wordpress/
Replace With: http://neuweb.com/wordpress/
The url become something like: http://neuweb.com/wordpress/content/...
**We have implemented special features!**
The first one is "Replace a Domain / URL" that is useful for a quick and simple transfer or a migration of a WordPress site.
The second feature is full support for serialized data. There are a lot more features - check them out! :-)
Our goal with this plugin is to give you a good solution for manipulating your data for both Developers and Users of WordPress.
> **Note:** This plugin requires PHP 5.6 or higher to be activated.
