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 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.
