FUNCTION confluence.REGEXP_REPLACE does not exist

Hi All,

In my confluence pages there are some old boken links which i wanted to update from the back end or using any other way.

I refered to this link and https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/Some+Attachments+or+Links+Are+No+Longer+Accessible+After+Server+Migration

But the step# 3 it throws error

mysql> update bodycontent set body = (select REGEXP_REPLACE(body, '\\|http://newserver/download/attachments/.*/', '|^', 'g')) where bodycontentid in (select bodycontentid from contentmigration);
ERROR 1305 (42000): FUNCTION confluence.REGEXP_REPLACE does not exist

I could understand that the function is not built-in in mySQL like Oracle.Is the function available in some repository.

Could any one please help me in resolving this .Also please let me know if there is any other way to replace the link.

Thanks in Advance,

Aravind

I think you're right - the problem is that REGEXP_REPLACE is a built in function for Oracle databases.

This StackOverflow article has some suggestions for MySQL - maybe it will help? http://stackoverflow.com/questions/986826/how-to-do-a-regular-expression-replace-in-mysql

What version of MySQL are you using? The MySQL 5.1 documentation lists some regular expression string functions: http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/regexp.html#operator_regexp
