#14 Installation - Table Prefix


I installed the script on a test database which I use for multiple purposes.
Therefor, the table uploads was already used. Meaning I had to delete my existing table and add the new one.

Might I suggest to add a "Database Prefix" in step 1 and the config file?
The created table would then be "prefix_authors" for example.
This way people running multiple systems in one database won't have issues.

All you'd have to change in the code are the references to your tables and replace them by the global prefix + tablename.

( this is would be an improvement whether you automate the table creation process or not imo )
