Crash customiser if 'theme_mods_themename' option_value contains wrong url

I migrate sites from test environments to live environments a bunch and have noticed this with every migration.

If you add a custom field to the customiser that allows for an image to be uploaded, if you move the domain, the customiser will fail, replacing the image url wth cannot get ID of said image.

Only way to fix it is to remove the URL within the database.

How are you migrating sites from test to live? How are you handling the search/replace of URLs? If you are doing a plain search/replace than this will fail due to values being stored in serialized PHP values. To safely rename a URL in a database, you need to use something like WP-CLI's wp search-replace.

This also applies if you change your domain / url. You're able to change the URL within the Settings. What I'm thinking is that rather than failing (because it's javascript based), should there be a check to see if the image exists before outputting an error?

Our migration process usually ends up with blue velvet plugin doing it's magic. This ticket is more for the fact that this shouldn't output an error within javascript which causes the whole page to fail.
