    Hi, I recently changed the database for my girlfriends blog, her old server passed out. By making a backup on the database and then fix it in the new, everything was settled and worked great after my girlfriend had some boring time with replacing all the links.

    I myself had to go around in all the tables in the database replacing all old URL's for the blog with the new.

    It is here the problems start. All page ID etc has been replaced with the new URL's still when I press on following things :

    "Archive"
    "Next page" (if there has been alot of posts)

    it automaticly want to connect to the old URL and that, is a kinda anoying problem, since I can not find these things in the Database structures nor in the "admin" system.... any idea? shall I download the database and run find and replace? but that would be kinda anoying since I would have to replace the pager urls to different etc etc... so.. anywhere in the tables where I can find this information easily?

    Did you change the home and site_url values in the DB?
