Database name change AFTER installation?


Recommended Posts

My host messed up permissions and I couldn't finish the installation. So they did it for me, and now the name of the database is a string of abou 30 random characters. The database user "name" is another string of 15 characters.


How could I change the names into something more palatable? is it very time-consuming? or should I just uninstall and do it all over?

The database and user names are determined by the host and therefore an uninstall wouldn't do you much good. You could simply request they provide you with names that are more to your liking and then you'll need to change the configure.php files to match.

Apathy is a dominant gene - mutate.
