[resolved] [closed] Using Search and Replace with multisite (4 posts)

    Hello. I have an existing multisite installed locally. I want to migrate it to a web host. To do that, I would like to use Search and Replace on my local instance to first update the site URLs to match the new location (I realize this will break the local site, but will give me a db version I can upload to the web host).

    It seems the Search and Replace plugin is not made for multisite though - the tool itself is accessed via the WordPress admin Tools menu. This menu is Not available via the Network dashboard, only the dashboard for each site.

    Does anyone know of a way to safely do this using this plugin? Do I have to go to each site's dashboard and use the tool one-at-a-time? Thanks.

    Same here; I need to replace file-links on a subsite, but there's no way to replace stuff on the subsite, only multisite-wide. Pity.

    Frank, that's not an answer for me, sorry. As for Justin: I use WordPress Migrate DB for that
