Installation empty database table prefix (3 posts)

    Hi i have recently moved my hosting from freehosting.com to godaddy, i have done everything that i was meant to, changing name servers, updating the config file and downloading and reuploading the backup mysql files..
    But I am having an issue when it comes to actually installing wordpress - when i access the website it goes to wordpress - installation but has this error
    Configuration error
    Your wp-config.php file has an empty database table prefix, which is not supported.

    Does anyone know what this means?
    I have check the config file and it should be fine.. ive been told its an issue with godaddy and i should change, but after all the effort i went through to setup with godaddy i dont feel it would be wise to just leave...

    Thanks for any help anyone might have!
    Luke

    look out $table_prefix='' in ur config file and put wp_ after equals to sign..

    like this..

    $table_prefix='wp_'

    and save the file after editing..

    then try again..!! :)

    you can also put anything instead of wp_

    like gs_

    but remember to put a underscore (_) sign after ur prefix..;)

    tip--- choosing a prefix other than wp_ is highly recommended to harden security :)
