Probably the best way is to follow the database section of the
documentation for changing your hostname. This will change all
references to Host X to Host Y which should be what you want. If you
don't want to do it for the whole database then a simple SQL query
executed at the command-line or via phpmyadmin, etc. would be :
UPDATE recorded SET hostname = 'dionysus' WHERE hostname = 'tooth'
