Domain Names In Serialized Data Structuresserialized url domain
Posted 22 February 2012 - 11:57 AM
(1) Will be absolute URLs in serialied data (URLs prepended by the domain name, e.g. www.example.com) replaced with the new domain name?
(2) Will the serial data structures automatically realigned if the string length of the new domain name differs from the old?
(3) Is there an option to disable/enable the replacement of the old domain name in the 'GUID' field in table 'posts'?

Thanks for your enquiry.
3) The guid is not updated as per WordPress.org recommendation - but should you wish to change the guid we do provide a utility that can be used for making database string replacements if you do not have any other preferred utility for such operations.
I hope this answers your questions to your satisfaction but if you require any clarification or have additional questions please be sure to let us know, thanks.
