Description

i find it really frustrating moving wordpress from server to server and to a new url.

this is mainly due to the fact that the url is hard coded in the database, requiring me to open up the sql and do a find and replace.

would it be possible to use the $SERVER globals to get the 'blog url' rather than making entries in the database with the http://blog.url/ part of the url?

that would make the process so much easier, since you could just backup/reup the database using your normal database admin tools without messing around with editing the .sql file or going through the processes described at

http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress#Moving_WordPress_to_a_New_Server

would it be possible to make wordpress more portable? i would be happy to help design/code the feature.

That's a terrible idea, IMO.

Closing this off as wontfix. The ticket is too open-ended and will sit here forever without a patch. If WordPress did consider changing how URLs are stored or referenced, it would require significant planning and discussion beforehand.
