DB Replacer enables you to search and replace in any table in your database.

It even supports searching with case sensitivity and using regular expressions.

DB Replacer will save you hours of manual labor!

Sometimes you need to replace something in all your articles (or other content). This will take you hours doing it the conventional way:

  1. open the article manager
  2. search for your article
  3. open the article
  4. make required changes
  5. save the article
  6. search for the next article
  7. open the that article
  8. make required changes
  9. save the article
  10. repeat the step 6 - 9 another 3 zillion times

With DB Replacer this takes a few seconds. All you need to do is to

  1. go to DB Replacer in your Joomla! administrator
  2. select proper content table and table column(s)
  3. input the search and replace text
  4. click on ‘Replace’

DB Replacer gives you a preview of what is going to be replaced, so you know what you are doing before actually replacing anything.

WARNING: DB Replacer replaces stuff right in your database in the places you tell it to. This can - if you replace the wrong stuff - break your site. So make a backup, be careful and only use this if you know what you are doing. We cannot accept any liability for the result, and we make no expressed or implied guarantee of safe use.
