You can change the server default, you can change the database default -- these changes do not actually alter your data -- until you do an ALTER TABLE the data is not actually changed. You might want to do a backup before trying to change your tables, or try it with some test data in a smaller table first. When you ALTER a table, it creates a new table and moves all the data across before dropping the old one and renaming the new table to the old name.
