So you are moving your WordPress site to a new server. Be sure to change and update your site’s URLs in the database. Here is how you can do that:
First, make sure you have a new database selected. Now, run SQL update and replacement commands on the tables, particularly, wp_options, wp_posts, and wp_postmeta.
Use the below codes in order to swap in your old URLs with the new ones.
- Avoid trailing slashes
- If necessary, change the table prefix values wherever applicable, i.e., wp_xxx
All right, let’s see the codes:
UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = replace(option_value, ‘http://www.oldurl’, ‘http://www.newurl’) WHERE option_name = ‘home’ OR option_name = ‘siteurl’;
UPDATE wp_posts SET guid = replace(guid, ‘http://www.oldurl’,’http://www.newurl’);
UPDATE wp_posts SET post_content = replace(post_content, ‘http://www.oldurl’, ‘http://www.newurl’);
UPDATE wp_postmeta SET meta_value = replace(meta_value,’http://www.oldurl’,’http://www.newurl’);
Did the above codes worked for you? Need further assistance?
