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.

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.
