Migrating WordPress domains quickly

Changing the domain name or URL of a WordPress site, whether from local server to a live or vice versa, can be a frustrating and time consuming task. One nice script I found helps ease that process considerately. WordPress-Domain-Changer is a simple PHP script that lets you quickly change domains of your WordPress installation.

The script basically works by replacing the old domain name strings in the ‘wp_options’ table with the new values. It will also replace any references to the old domain name in post content with the new domain name. Upload paths will also be changed.
