    Hello,

    I am having a real headache here. I changed the location of my blog (newlocation.com) and many images disappeared.

    The problem is that the blog looks for the images in the old location (oldlocation.com).

    I do not want to upload all the images anymore, therefore I want to tell WordPress that it has to look in the new location. From general settings in the admin page I can choose the WordPress address and Site address URLs but apprently they do not apply for the uploaded images (I see from the source of the page that the img src is still pointing to the old location).

    The only way to make the blog understand that the location changed is to modify it from the database. The problem is that I cannot find it.

    anybody knows it? Thanks

    Thanks irfan_np but It is not matter of cache. There is a field in the database but as soon as you change it it gets back the default banner.

    that will give you access to the database. it's a database administration tool you can access from your host.

    Yeah I know, I use it even if I am self hosted. The problem is that I do not know in which table this value gets stored
