Changing names of MySQL Tables

Author phlojo
#1 | Posted: 13 Jun 2003 00:30 
I recently installed miniBB, on my virtual server. I need to install another miniBB - all together different - on the same server, using the same, one and only mySQL database, so I was wondering how do I control or how do I change the name of the mySQL Database tables.... I know how to do it on the mySQL server, I just can't figure out where is it defined in the miniBB code. The default is minibb_"tablename", so I'd like to change minibb to something else, because i'm sure this should allow me to install more copies of miniBB.

Thank you for your help...
