Very good

Does what it should.

I made the mistake to change table prefix with installation by thinking it would increase security.

But as you can read here, it won’t: http://wpkrauts.com/2015/the-database-prefix-is-not-a-security-feature/

After all the hustle it gave me to sync between production und development i chose to switch back to the default prefix.

This really helped.

Simple, quick and effective – won’t save you from yourself

5 stars when it’s fool proof. Once it gets updated to check that it can write to the wp-config.php first and then stops and doesn’t change your database tables if it can’t, then that’s a 5 star!

I’m a fool and didn’t check my wp-config.php was writeable before running the plugin, even though it clearly mentions that you should! This is not the plugin’s fault, but mine.

It won’t save you from yourself and it will continue to allow you to run the plugin and update your table prefix even if it can’t then write to your wp-config.php

If you do this, like I did, then you will end up with your site redirecting you to /wp-admin/install.php – this is not a big problem as you can quickly fix it by editing your wp-config.php and changing the $table_prefix = 'newprefix_'; line to match the new prefix.

So yeah, does what it says it will, warns you not to be stupid, but won’t stop you from being stupid. With the addition of saving you from yourself this would be a perfect 5 stars.
