There's two questions here.

First, don't use SQL to change the base url.  Change it in the UI under general configuration, and if you have application links between them, go into them and edit the urls in those links

Second - redirection is NOT the same as changing base urls.  If you have users landing on your old defunct Confluence/ JIRA urls, then your best option is to have a web-server sitting there listening on the old urls and issuing an automatic permanent redirect to the new urls.

Would love to change mine but it doesn't come up when I hit edit settings...
