Replacing Text In A MySQL Database Using PHP
You may have the word Ben in a lot of your MySQL rows and want to repalce that word with a new word such as Jim.
If you have 10+ of rows with the name Ben in it, it could take a while having to modify each table manually…
Here is a quick and easy way to do it all at once with some simple PHP and MySQL:
// Connect to your MySQL Database here etc...
// Now with the MySQL Query
mysql_query("update table_name set text=REPLACE(text,'Ben','Jim')");
// Rest of your PHP code...
Replace table_name and text with your own database fields and you’re all set!
Pretty simple huh?
