http to https

Since https is now free and google and browsers forcing us to migrate, I was trying to do the same. After getting the certificate and migrating all requests to https, next thing to do is to replace all image src in QA to https. Will the following query do the required change?

update qa_posts set content = REPLACE(content, 'http://example.com', 'https://example.com');

I do see you moved your site to https, please share tips, it will help others.

yes, but without doing the above step which is required to change the img src URL to https or else browsers will show a warning or might not load the image. If someone can confirm the query, I can give the steps -- other steps are pretty easy anyway.
