Thank You Stephen,

Can you please let me know under database which table to look at.



@Stephen Gurnick : Thank You, Can you please let me know which Table i am supposed to look at. I went through Database but couldn't yield much info. Please let me know your views. Thank You, Akash

For operations inside the database, I highly recommend contacting Atlassian support to provide guidance. Going into the database to make modifications can put your Confluence instance into an unsupported configuration, unless you are absolutely sure you know what you're doing. Assuming your Space backup is in XML format, you could use the sed command on this file to replace your stage URL with your production URL before importing back into your database.

Adding to what Stephen wrote. You could use the below on the xml file. Replace the http://<source>; and http://<dest>; with your site specific information. The source and destination should contain a fully qualified domain name, so you don't change URLs that are set correctly. You will need to unzip the archive before you run the command and zip up the files once you are done. perl -p -i -e 's|http://<source>|http://<dest>|g'; entities.xml Always make a backup before you do something like this. Or at the very least save a complete XML backup to a safe location.

This will most likely involve going into the database to update the link URLs. Since Atlassian doesn't support users going into the database to make their own modifications, I suggest you contact support to have them give you a query to use.
