    Hi,

    I recently installed the Change DB prefix pluginand ran it as instructed. It said that it had changed my prefixes and no errors were shown.
    However, when I try to access my website, it takes me to the wordpress installation page. I have looked in my website directory and all the wordpress files still have the ‘wp-‘ prefix and not what I changed it to. My wp-config file still has the table prefix as ‘wp_’.

    Can anyone help as I am lost as to what to do and cannot access my site.

    Thanks.

    Alan

    Hi Alan,

    This plugin will change prefix of database which is require for security purpose, it’s not change the file prefix.

    and your wp-config file prefix means,once you open a file, you can see one constant for prefix, that will be changed.

    and if it’s change, your wp-config file is not writable.

    Pl check in your database tables and your new prefix changed over there and let me know your feedback

    Thanks,
