Changing database names
You can change the name of a database at any time.
To change a database's name:
In the shortcuts
area of the Home pageMySQL Admin Tool (MySQL section).
In the MySQL submenu,
click List Databases. The MySQL
Databases form opens.
Click in the Actions column
next to the database whose administrator information you want to change.
The Rename MySQL Database form opens.
Rename the database.
The prefix of the database cannot be changed.
Database names should not exceed the maximum limit of 64
characters, inclusive of the prefix. For example, if your database prefix
is 30 characters long, you must
restrict the name of your database to a maximum of 30
characters, to conform to the limit (64). Four characters are reserved
for internal use.
On successful renaming, an appropriate message appears
in the Status panel.
