Change table prefix

When I set up a set in LocalWP on my laptop, I’d like to change the table prefix from wp to anything else. How do I do that?

Hi @josf

There are a lot of tutorials around the web for this but this might be helpful to start:

Thanks, I know that. I can use a plugin to do it for me, easy peasy. I just wanted to know if I can do it when I create a site. Your reply infers that I can’t do that. No big deal, just wanted to know that.

Thanks for the extra context @josf and sorry if I misunderstood. I don’t think we’ve explored having an option like that previously because when a site goes live the database credentials will be different anyway. So it’s not necessarily a big issue locally but you could always change the prefix after creating a site and then save that site as a blueprint to use again and again if you wish.
