Hi,

I'm running 1.0.7 and I want to install the SMF Forum component. What is the best way to go about renaming my database tables to the default "jos_" prefix? I made the mistake of giving the tables my own prefix, but SMF requires the default prefix. Please help, before I mess everything up.

Thanks in advance,

railer

this probably isn't the neatest/easiest way, but it gets the job done.

in phpMyAdmin export the DB and select "create"

in your favorite text editor find and replace all of your prefixes with jos_

Then import using that sql command

I am looking into where to tell joomla the prefix
