    I installed this plugin and after going to the page where it asks you if you want to change admin (WHICH I DIDN'T!!!) it simply killed my access to the site, now I get this message: You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page. And I'm the admin!!! Can I simply delete the plugin? I tried to change the wp_ to something else and supposedly it did it, but for what I see on FTP it didn't change any file, however I'm not sure if it changed something in the database. At this point I don't care at all if my files are called wp_ or whatever as long as I get my site back!!

    no, it didn't work. I found out that wp-config was changed when I tried to change wp_ to something else. So I reverted the wp-config file to the original but it considered I was installing a new blog so I had to reinstall and still have to rewrite everything. Luckily it was a fresh install with only a test post for a client so other than having to create static pages again and the test post no big harm done, but if this was a site with loads of post this plugin would have kill an entire site if not backed up (in my case I backed up before install but didn't realize I made an SQL backup when I've no access to phpMyAdmin, so it was the same as nothing)

    Anyway, a good couple of hours of work lost. I still look forward for a stable version of this plugin, I think this had to do more with my client's server than the plugin itself, but still not good enough to risk entire sites
