WordPress Migrating the Database

workshop seems to be of low quality

off the bat, nothing on the website was working, I had to remove the extra two lines from the config file to make it work

then, the method of updating the database through search and replace is wrong and leaves things on the site broken

this is from the wordpress.org site

If you do a search and replace on your entire database to change the URLs, you can cause issues with data serialization, due to the fact that some themes and widgets store values with the length of your URL marked.


it seems for me, at the very least, that my images are not appearing, god knows what else might be brocken

any ideas how to fix this?
