    I just installed the WP Security Scan plugin, and had it change my table prefixes.

    After I did this, I can no longer access wordpress (so I can't correct my problem where it was caused) or my website!!

    I get the following message when I visit my website URL, and when I visit the WP login:

    ERROR: $table_prefix in wp-config.php can only contain numbers, letters, and underscores.

    !!!!HELP!!!!!!!!

    Also, I had the WP-DB-Backup plugin email me a backup file just before this happened...except it's a text file??? How can I use this file to restore things?
