bash sed find and replace - open to bidding

I need a bash script to do this: I have folder that contain html files and subfolders.

now files name as [url removed, login to view], [url removed, login to view] etc.

i want to replace the original file name with the title tag of the file ( instead of the space between the words i would like to add "_". then replace all links in all folder that contain the original name with the new title name.

example of title - <title>admin/environment/php some text</title> change to <title>php_some_text</title>

then to replace all links in all files that contain the old links to the new file name that will be php_some_text.html.

all my needs have a solutions in my script but don't know how to replace the link all over to the new file name. my script:


cd /var/www/clients/client1/web2/web/docs/31/en

find . -name "*.html" > [url removed, login to view]

while read -r filepath ;


# Considering the subfolder can have spaces,

# We will start by separating the filename

# And dirname

folderpath=`dirname "$filepath"`

filename=`basename "$filepath"`


new_name=$(grep -oP '<title>\K.+?</title>' "$filepath" | sed 's#</title>##' | tr ' ' '_' )

#echo new_name=$(grep -oP '<title>\K.+?</title>' "$filepath" | sed 's#</title>##' | tr ' ' '_' )

# With BSD GREP (for who need the info)

# new_name=$(grep -o '<title>.*</title>' $filepath | sed -e 's/<title>\(.*\)<\/title>/\1/g' | sed -e 's/$filename/$new_name/g' | tr ' ' '_')

#if [[ $new_name = */* ]]; then echo "/${new_name##*}"; else echo "$new_name"; fi

mv -v "$filepath" "$folderpath/`basename $new_name`.html"

### command that i tried to solve the link url issue

#find /var/www/clients/client1/web2/web/docs -type f -exec sed -i 's/$filename/$new_name/g' {} \;

#grep -rl '$filename' /var/www/clients/client1/web2/web/docs/31/en | xargs sed -i 's/$filename/$new_name/g' *.html

#sed -i 's/$filename/$new_name/gi' *.html

done < [url removed, login to view]

Thank you
