MySql Inner Join Update Query

I have a meta field for a WordPress user called business_website that holds the company url. I need to update the user_url file in the wp_users table with the value from this business_website meta field.

I can construct a simple update query but since this needs some kind of join I'm unsure.

Please help.

Do you have business_website in another table. If both columns in  same table, you can try this.

Update wp_users
      Set user_url = business_website

If business_website is in another table, what is the joining condition between both the tables. If you know, you can try like this.

Update wp_users t1
    Join  OtherTable t2
      On t1.Col = t2.Col
      Set t1.user_url = t2.business_website

yes another table: wp_usermeta the linking fields are as follows:


linkage fields
wp_usermeta:user_id
wp_users:id

date fields
wp_usermeta:business_website
wp_users:user_url

I'd like to add a where clause to test before I change 500 records.
where id=123

I'm trying, I really am. But I've seen so many wrong approaches involving date(time) boundaries I despair about my inability to explain it. I've seen quite a few recently that define a non-leap year as 364 days, or 366 days and the list goes on. …
