    I’m building a new site on a local machine and plan to move to my web host when completed.

    I’m seeing however after importing a prebuilt site that the hostname of the local machine is present within the database. Edits that I’m doing, e.g. uploading a new background image are also in the database as the full URL including the hostname.

    I’ve dumped the database from phpmyadmin to get an example:

    var(--awb-color7)\" background_image=\"http://wordpress.local/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/testimonial_bkgd.jpg\"

    If I move the site to the web host, will the site break? How do the hardcoded data for the hostname.local get updated? Do we have to do a find and replace in the database?
