This is the documentation for the Joomla 3 version of DB Replacer.
There is currently no Joomla 4 version of DB Replacer.

DB Replacer is Joomla! administrator component that enables you to search and replace in any table of your Joomla database.

It even supports searching with case sensitivity and using the powerful 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 would take you hours doing it the conventional way, manually opening and changing each article.

With DB Replacer, the process takes just a few seconds. To replace a certain string in your database table, you simply need to:

  1. Go to DB Replacer in your Joomla! administrator
  2. Select a database table and the desired 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 can see what will happen before actually replacing anything.


Note: Differently from ReReplacer (which does replacements on-the-fly, leaving the original text unchanged), with DB Replacer the replacements are done permanently in the database, so make sure you know what you're doing.
