I want to set the SUFFIX column to the value of the ID column if the value of the URL occurs more than once

For example in this case...
URL		SUFFIX	ID
/test.html	Null	1
/test.html	Null	2
/test.html	Null	3

Open in new window


...as the URL exists more than once then the Suffix should be set to the ID for each entry

I've requested that this question be deleted for the following reason:

Solved it with

UPDATE url t1
  JOIN
  (
    SELECT url_id,url
      FROM url
     GROUP BY url
    HAVING COUNT(*) > 5
  ) t2
  ON t1.url= t2.url
  SET t1.suffix= t1.id;

Please don't delete the question. Give this "solved with" comment as a new author comment and accept it as a solution instead. This will give everyone 0 points (same as deletion) but the knowledge will remain searchable in EE.
