Ok,

So I have a table, with field 'short' that contains shortened version of urls.
Right now row['short'] on each row would outuput links like this:
on.fb.me/zzV01q

But I want it to output:
bit.ly/zzV01q

So I tried this:
update videos2 set short = replace(short, ‘on.fb.me’, ‘bit.ly’) WHERE length('short') > 0

Open in new window


But It gives me error:
#1054 - Unknown column '‘on.fb.me' in 'field list'

short is a varchar(30)       utf8_general_ci        by structure.
