How to search a string in post content

Post by chimp77 »

I have many links in posts that have the scheme in the url that starts with "http" and would like to change them all to "https". Is there a search string function that can change these all at once?

use your favourite search engine for "replace (part) of string in table", or
search phpBB for the same
Similar questions have been posed before, not even that long ago IIRC

Or even ‘SQL to replace http with https’.
