A friend of mine has been having trouble dealing with his MySQL database. He's been trying to locate all occurrences of a URL in the database but he doesn't know where to start. He wants to search all of the tables / fields. Appreciate the help.

Hi,

If you have phpmyadmin installed, it has a global search feature. Otherwise,  you will use command line something like this:

mysqldump -u myuser –no-create-info databasename > myfile.sql

Then you can just do a find on myfile.sql for the URL you want.
