    I have a site well set up on one domain and now, I want to change the domain name, the other domain is hosted on a different server( so its a migration also). I have transferred the files and database.. but how t change the domain name in database in bulk? I mean there are 85 tables and 135 entries of old domain name.. any sql query to change that in bulk?

    Changing domain name AND moving to a different server will be an involved process and there are different ways to do this. Others prefer to make the domain name in old server's database which is risky. While others including me prefer to change or import revised sql with new domain name in new server's database.

    Don't forget, you will have to make domain change in wp-config.php backup and also check the htaccess backup as well if needed.
