Hi there,

U cant directly rename a database in Mysql front.

U can do it round about. But am not sure if all the previliges/grants/┬┤ets works well doing so.

Create a new database with the required name.

export all ur tables to the new Database

delete the old one.

Another way of doing this is:

Stop MySql and rename the folder holding the database files using DOS/Explorer/Bash

Hope this helps you.
