Database prefix field during WordPress quick install.

  • | 1219 points

    I'm in the process of moving a bunch of sites to Laragon, and it's amazing to be able to quickly create a new WP installation, but after creating it I usually want to migrate an existing site to it, and most migration plugins only support migrating a site to another site with the same database prefix. It's not as simple as just renaming the tables either, because the prefix exists in option values within the tables as well, so I have to go digging for the prefix and change it manually. It would be super helpful if I could simply set the database prefix when I do the WP install.
