I have a database table with a list of website urls e.g.
http://website.com/ and I want to remove all the
https:// from them. Is their a simple SQL statement I could run on a column to remove it?
I've had a search around, but I can't find what I need. I'm presuming I need to use both REPLACE and UPDATE but I'm struggling.
So far I have:
UPDATE list SET website WHERE website LIKE 'http://%';
Is that correct? I'm using MySQL and the table is list, and column is website and I want to remove the
http:// so a url like:
http://website.com/ becomes just:
EDIT: Is it also possible to remove a trailing slash as well?
Have a look at the
REPLACE function. You'll need to use it twice to remove both http and https.
UPDATE list SET website = REPLACE(REPLACE(website, 'https://', ''), 'http://', '') WHERE website like 'https://%' OR website like 'http://%'
To handle trailing slashes, you can use the
UPDATE list SET website = LEFT(website, LENGTH(website) - 1) WHERE RIGHT(website, 1) = '/'
Here is some documentation that you may find useful: MySQL string functions
Why not just replace the string if it exists:
UPDATE list SET website = Replace(website, 'http://', '')
update TABLE_NAME set FIELD_NAME = replace(FIELD_NAME, ‘find this string’, ‘replace found string with this string’) where CONDITION
