Search and replace tool
Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.9. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle may be available here: Search and replace tool.
Admins can search and replace text e.g. URLs in their Moodle database using the search and replace tool at http://yourmoodlesite.org/admin/tool/replace/index.php (replacing yourmoodlesite.org with the address of your Moodle site). This is useful when a Moodle site is moved from one server to another.
Note: A database backup is highly recommended before running the search and replace ;-)
Note: New in 2.9: It is also possible to do a search and replace from the command line. Please see Administration via command line for more information.
