New Install - Changing WP Table Prefix (2 posts)

    Hi

    I just want to clear something up, I have tried doing a search for this, but can only find articles on sites that have already been installed.

    I am installing a new wp site and thought it was time I learnt how to do an install that is more security conscious towards the DB.

    So in the wp-config, do I just change the table prefix from wp_ to xx_? Is there anything else I need to change reference to? ie folders etc. Considering this is a new "manual" install.

    Thanks.
