I used the 1.7 beta version for Joomla 2.5 and it worked super. I used the backup (configuration.php) option. And it did its job great.

Worked well so far

I downloaded the 1.7 beta version and installed on a Joomla 2.5 site. So far, so good. Just sticks to the prefix task, so very simple to configure.

No bugs, no problems, no more time to waste! 3 days of playing with sql... and at last i found it- no more problems with database prefix changeing.

I`m so lucky to find it!! Enjoy everyone! Tanks for autor!! Really good job!

This has just saved me hours of work. I needed to organise a group of websites to share a single login. To do this, all the databases must share the identical user data including the prefix and secret code. It was so so easy to do the database and config update using this extension - flawlessly. Full marks and an essential part of my toolkit from now on :-)

I downloaded this for 1.7, installed it and ran the change. It worked perfectly. Well done and thanks for this. Donation on its way!

Thanxx very much for this component. I tried a component first that offers the same functionality, but that really messed up my site several times. This component is so easy and reliable that it was a piece of cake altering the database prefix. A recommendation for everyone that needs to change the prefix. !!!

Keep up the excellent work !!!

Great Module

Thank you so much for creating a fantastic component to update your database suffix as well as your configuration files it helped me update about 10 websites in less than 5 minutes great component thank you so much

Top marks, i destroyed my new site 3 times while attempting to do this manualy after install.

This just does the job instantly no probs!

Thanks to the creator.

Simple and perfect

Really saves you mucking about with the MySQL and botching things up potentially. Takes 1 minute from install to database change, including download time if you're fast with your mouse :)

Don't think twice, if you need to change your prefix, gettit!

Simple and Solid

This is by far one of the best and simplest solutions I have come across on the web. No more digging into .php files. For those who are "teapots" in Joomla (extensive technical knowledge) - this component is a definite treasure!

Thank You for this component - it worked like magic! Updated table prefixes on two sites within 3 minutes!

A word of advice - to integrate "buy me coffee" into "about" page.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the review.
This is a good idea.
