(Additional tools may be found elsewhere in the admin settings)

Admins can search and replace text e.g. URLs in their Moodle database using the search and replace tool at (replacing with the address of your Moodle site). This is useful when a Moodle site is moved from one server to another or when the URL changes.

Alternatively, a command line script can be used to search and replace text. See Administration via command line for details.

Warning: A database and site backup should be created before performing a search and replace.
