How To Change Database Name

When installing WordPress through fantastico, it automatically creates a new database with a generic prefix of wrdp1. If you have a few databases installed in your account it’s so much easier to rename them all to something that reflects the actual website they are associated with and provides an increased level of security.

This useful video shows us exactly how to do that, but ALWAYS MAKE A BACKUP COPY of your original database before making any changes.
