Search and Replace in MySQL

Sunday, October 9th, 2011

I often find myself looking for the proper syntax while attempting to do a search and replace in MySQL, and figured that I would help out by posting the syntax for someone else in the same situation:

UPDATE `schema`.`table` set column = replace(column, "find", "replace");

That syntax will find any values "find" within the schema and table, and replace them with "replace"

A pretty short post but hopefully helpful to some of you out there.
