You must have server access. Bring the root with the website to the 
front. Highlight the website by placing the cursor anywhere in the 
table called writingMnilawebsite. From the server menu, select 
install site. Enter the changed url.

This is one case where writing becomes poetry easily. :-)

same thing, but pick uninstall site from the server menu. then close 
the root containing it and throw the root away, or if there are other 
sites in that root that you wish to keep, delete the table, then save 
the root.

yes, if you  install a plugin - I offer one free called manilafixer 
that will do that and much else.  See
