How To Mass Update WordPress URLs After a Site Migration

If you’ve moved your WordPress installation from one URL structure to another, then you might find that certain things might break: for example, image paths.

Updating all your paths will just take a few seconds with a simple MySQL command. Go to PHPMyAdmin, a popular database management panel that your web host should provide you with, and open up your WordPress database. What we’re going to do is to perform an update of all BLOB fields, or in other words, update all the posts that you have at once.

Here’s the SQL command that you should run:

[code toolbar=”0″]UPDATE `wp_posts` SET `post_content` = replace(post_content, ‘oldurl.com/wordpress’, ‘newurl.com/wordpress’)[/code]
