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?

Enjoy! :)
