Where do you use this plugin?

Why does updating the domain break some plugins?

Some plugins will store the data in the database serialized which does not allow for easy updating of the data. You may un-check tables used by such plugins to avoid breakage and then update the urls manually for those plugins. Currently the options, postmeta, usermeta, commentmeta, and sitemeta tables are serialization safe. The Pro Version supports updating these tables created by plugins.

How do I know which tables I should not update?

Most tables will be just fine to update. This plugin will tell you which ones not to update.
If you wish to try to update tables mentioned as not safe anyway, you may make a backup of your database, run this on all tables and if you run into trouble, restore your database, un-check tables in sections, and rerun this until you find the culprit. If you find you are running into issues often with custom table you may want to check out the Pro Version of this plugin which works with any table.

Rezensionen

target destination config at host provider blockage

Found out after using the plug in that my development website (wp.domain.com) with cloud installation of WordPress at host provider was on a different server than my placeholder production website (domain.com) built with a cloud installation of a different tool at the host provider. The production website on the other server was thus not going to move itself out of the way to let the plug in do everything the end customer might wish for. The host provider has since put changes into motion and from first glances at the wp.domain.com content seems pretty sure that the plug in got the urls ready, and when the server adjustment are replicated with the worldwide servers, the WordPress material will in fact be usable at domain.com, and I will be finally be able to get back into the WP admin via domain.com/wp-admin and close any small gaps. I will edit the review with the final conclusion. Hoping for a perfect result. IT savvy but relatively speaking. Laypeople suffer from IT lingo/detail overload, which is why we buy plug-ins!

nice so far

worked out for me the last times on simple WP sites.
But facing sites with lot of plugins i would need the pro version to update custom DB tables.
But i won’t afford to buy when there is a better search and replace plugin out there which offers these features right away.

Another slam dunk

I tried this plugin because I like the authors other plugins and it works just as great. switch my site to SSL in under 30 seconds!

Works perfectly, we buyed Pro version

That’s a great plugin and it works like a charm.

Only missing features are:

  • an override function to rename GUID (I do it for websites that are still not online).
  • I would prefer to have a single Pro plugin instead of installing 2
  • a table list to be sure it’s gonna update all the tables in the database (with my_prefix_), rather than hoping it will magically works. With it still does.

Worked Perfectly

I was a bit nervous after reading some of the comments but even with a plugin heavy site this worked like a charm. I did go with the PRO version to get the support for plugins. Highly recommend!

Great Plugin! Been Using 2 Years

Thanks you for bringing this to the community. Lovely plugin. I like how it’s not on the main navigation and under Tools instead. It only has one purpose, to update URLs and not a bunch of useless mumbo jumbo to go with it. LOVE it.
