Installer support for database field prefixes
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: Jan

I want to install MeidaWiki for a number of websites on the same server. For security and
convenience, each of these websites have their own MySQL database, each with a number of tables.

This leads to (at best) confusion over which table belongs to whom or (at worst) namespace
collisions. (Near miss: each of these databases already has an "images" table; you have an "image"

Wouldn't it be nice to have a configurable prefix for table names? (Default perhaps "wg_". What
does that stand for, anyway?)

I would be willing to implement this. I'm a long-time professional software engineer, but have not
worked in a sourceforge team before, so would need some help getting started.

Version: 1.4.x
Severity: enhancement

it is already supported through whole code. just the installer misses
functionality. you may edit db dumps yourself and have this ;-) 1.4 release will
have this working, I hope.
