  • Diana, after you use this plugin to change the database prefix, you have to manually edit your wp-config.php file to change the database prefix there as well.

    Can you try that and let us know if it solves your problem?

    Good luck,

    Hi Fred, thanks for replying. Before I got your answer, I did check that, and found that even though the “change db prefix” plugin documentation says it changes the wp-config.php, it had not. So I changed it manually and it works OK now. But I kept a copy of that changed wp-config.php in case I have to use it again….

    Diana, I’m glad you were able to resolve the problem. A number of people, including myself, have asked the plugin developer to update the plugin so that it edits wp-config.php automatically. Aside from that, the plugin works really well. It does the hard part, which is updating the WordPress database correctly! -Fred
