Location of the uploaded file is incorrect - Local to live migration problem (3 posts)

    Hello all,

    I’ve got what is probably an easy fix to an issue I’m having:

    I installed WordPress locally, then migrated to a live server. Everything is working properly EXCEPT that the images are not loading. All image paths still point to my local url (http://localhost:8888/wp-content/uploads/2009/xy/z.jpg) instead of the live server’s directory.

    Is there an easy way to change all the image paths, or will I have to re-upload all my images? Someone suggested using phpmyadmin, but I don't have much experience with that tool. Any thoughts?

    Thanks much,

    I think you're pretty much stuck with re-uploading your image and then possibly using the Search & Replace plugin to change the urls for images already inserted into posts or pages.

    Thanks, esmi. I was able to change the URLs in the pages, but was hoping for a more comprehensive solution. I'll look into the Search & Replace plugin.
