    I previously installed wordpress using my host software installer & I ran
    a plugin called WP Security Scan & It told me that I needed to change my
    table prefix which I then tried to & could not get it to do it.

    I uninstalled wordpress & I am now manually installing it
    by using wordpress instructions at there website.

    I've already created my MySQL database using the database wizard & there was nothing
    in it for me to setup my own table prefix.

    I don't want to go any further & have to go thru all this again how do
    I setup a secure table prefix to keep a SQL injections from happing.

    It`s better if you install wordpress mannually, it`s not so much work, and you are sure that you have installed it correctly. If you need any help with this I can provide some directions for you

    it asks for the table prefix, if you install through wizard..but i don't believe that table prefix had something to do with the security.....

    I just deleted the old database & manually installed no where
    did I see a place to setup the table prefex using the wizard
    I even email my host about it & they said it need to be done
    during the manual install.
