Not working, breaks site
By , for WP 4.1.1

ONly updates the wp_config.php file and NOT changing the table prefixes itself. After using this plugin, your site is dead.

Indeed ZERO stars.

Not working, breaks site
By , for WP 4.1.1

Only changes the wp_config.php. Does NOT change the table prefixes. So you end up wit a non-working site because it does change the config and not the tables itself. Worthless.

I installed the plugin 'Change Database Prefix' from Ms. Bhumi Shah. That one works like a charm.

Zero stars - Do not install this
By , for WP 4.1.1

After throwing two errors on the admin page, it did not update the tables.

This should be removed from the repository as it is incompatible and does not do what it says. A year without updates is an eternity in WordPress and this has seemingly been abandoned by the author.

NEVER EVER USE THIS
By , for WP 3.9

I used this plugin to change my table prefix but it nearly crashed the entire site.

All this plugin did was it just changed the info in wp-config.php & was failed to change any table prefix at all.

I'd recommend all of you to manually do this task.

doesn't update tables

Updates wp-config.php but thats about it

Need to harden the plugin itself
By , for WP 3.7.1

Gave db error and broke the site.
had to drop new tables and modified db_prefix in wp-config.php back to original value. Avoid this plugin.

Does not Work

Does not work. So many errors.

It broke the website and quit
By ,

For some undisclosed error, the plugin did not manage to rename the tables, and told me to do it manually, while leaving the website broken.

Rubbish DO NOT USE !!!!
By , for WP 3.5.1

this plugin does not work
to recoever from this you will need to restore your database and change the config file back to the original prefix.
absolutely rubbish and should be removed.

Doesn't work
By , for WP 3.5.1

It updates wp-config.php, and the user's table, but everything else gives a red error. Then, the site is broken. Have to change wp-config back.

Solution was to use Chante DB Prefix plugin instead.
