Changing DB table prefix from WP_


Hi, I’m came across this article by @ahsan.parwez

I knew about changing the wp_ prefix to get the db tables off hackers’ radar. But wouldn’t this changing of prefix mess up plugins too? I’ll imagine alot of plugins use the standard wordpress table naming convention to do their CRUD stuff.

Please advise.


Hi @thienkw

All plugins uses the prefix function, instead of defining a particular database prefix. So, no need to worry about :slight_smile:


Just to confirm we have used different table prefix’s on multiple sites and have never had any issues with it.


Thanks guys! Will make the changes soon.
