My best guess:
1. set up frontend with hostname, say, revo1
2. extract from the database all entries in the SETTINGS table where
HOSTNAME=revo1 and pipe it to a file
3. change each instance of revo1 in that file to revo2
4. insert in the database settings table the amended file
5 rinse and repeat
I am sure Mike will leap in if this is the wrong approach, and there
may be a couple of other tables with host specific settings.
