 (Home >> SQL Services >> Disable Database Prefix)


By default, databases are prefixed with the cPanel account's username (e.g. user_database). On this screen, you can disable database prefixing.

Disable prefixes

To disable database prefixes:

  1. Select the I understand. Please disable Database Prefix checkbox.
  2. Click the Proceed button. 


Disabling database prefixes is not reversible. Do not disable database prefixes without seriously considering the consequences. Once you disable prefixing, you will be unable to downgrade your cPanel/WHM installation to a version that requires prefixes.
