mysql> UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = replace(option_value, 'http://www.oldurl.org', 'http://www.newurl.org') WHERE option_name = 'home' OR option_name = 'siteurl';
mysql> UPDATE wp_posts SET guid = replace(guid, 'http://www.oldurl.org','http://www.newurl.org');
mysql> UPDATE wp_posts SET post_content = replace(post_content, 'http://www.oldurl.org', 'http://www.newurl.org');
