Solving Database Hard-Coded Addressing Issues When Moving Websites

When moving a database-driven content management system (CMS) to a new server environment, hard-coded addressing can cause issues with broken links and missing images. To avoid these issues, one solution is to export the CMS’s database to a text file and use a search and replace tool to modify any hard-coded addressing. This approach allows you to easily modify the hard-coded addressing without specialized database software or knowledge. However, it’s important to be careful when making modifications to the database and to thoroughly test the CMS after making any changes.
