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.

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.

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 :-)

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 !!!

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!

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.

As described, this component easily changed the database prefix in just a minute or so. Unfortunately, when it attempted to update the configuration.php file, it managed to zero the file out which, of course, is what drove the rating down. I would suggest the author work on that issue and perhaps include an option to not update the configuration file so that users could choose.
