mysql – search & replace HUGE databases

So!, I have with almost 3Gb… and I need to make a search & replace…
This looks the best way to me…

EXPORT FROM MYSQL > LINUX SEARCH & REPLACE > IMPORT TO MYSQL

Dump database to text file

mysqldump -u user -p databasename > ./db.sql

Run sed command to find/replace target string

sed -i 's!oldString!newString!g' ./db.sql

Reload the database into MySQL

mysql -u user -p databasename < ./db.sql
