A node.js module that replaces a string in a MySQL dump and fixes serialized data. This is helpful when migrating a WordPress database from one host to another and the urls change.
Install the module via
$ npm install --save mysqldump-search-replace
The module consists of a simple function that takes a dump string, a search string and a replace string. It then replaces all occurrences of the search string by the replace string. Afterwards, serialized data length values in the dump are fixed.
var fs = ;var mysqldumpSearchReplace = ;var content = fs;var newContent =;
Caution: Only string lengths are fixed currently. Array values might also become inconsistent, but which shouldn't be the case in the WordPress scenario.
