Find and replace across multiple files

With SSH command line access, you can do the following to edit several individual pages to replace a string of text e.g. update the phone number on the footer of every page on your site.
              * perl -pi -w -e 's/search/replace/g;' *.php
                -e means execute the following line of code.
                -i means edit in-place
                -w write warnings
                -p loop
              * find ./ -type f -exec sed 's/search/replace' {} \;
