Search & Replace for Wordpress websites
This is highly desirable and basic feature.
When ever user enters "Hosting Settings" and changes the domain, Plesk will detect if a wordpress website is installed, if this domain has wordpress installed - a pop up will show up asking "Would you like to run Search and Replace in the database for the new domain?"
User will thick V and confirm.
Then a new pop up will show up showing:
- Creating restore point
- Running search and replace.
This feature will save a lot of Hosts the problem with customers / developers changing the domain and not figuring up why the database still has the old domain in a lot of tables. Plus this is will make plesk even better for developers.
Starting with WPT 4.6, WordPress administrators can automatically update their website URL in the WordPress database and wp-config.php file based on the actual current URL. This procedure is particularly useful after migrating a website from a different location like your local workstation. The Update Site URL feature is available in the “hamburger” (context drop-down menu) on a WordPress site card.
If you have feedback on this feature, let us know at our forum (https://talk.plesk.com) or other communication channels.
How does it work? I've tried to use it but didn't understand what i'm suppose to do.
