Support » Installing WordPress » Installation empty database table prefix

  • Hi i have recently moved my hosting from to godaddy, i have done everything that i was meant to, changing name servers, updating the config file and downloading and reuploading the backup mysql files..
    But I am having an issue when it comes to actually installing wordpress – when i access the website it goes to wordpress – installation but has this error
    Configuration error
    Your wp-config.php file has an empty database table prefix, which is not supported.

    Does anyone know what this means?
    I have check the config file and it should be fine.. ive been told its an issue with godaddy and i should change, but after all the effort i went through to setup with godaddy i dont feel it would be wise to just leave…

    Thanks for any help anyone might have!

  • look out $table_prefix='' in ur config file and put wp_ after equals to sign..

    like this..


    and save the file after editing..

    then try again..!! 🙂

    you can also put anything instead of wp_

    like gs_

    but remember to put a underscore (_) sign after ur prefix..;)

    tip— choosing a prefix other than wp_ is highly recommended to harden security 🙂
