    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.

    No in the cpanel you donĀ“t have this option.
    This pic came from manual install,so to do the manual install you must upload
    WP files via ftp to your root dir.then you must go to the adress:your site.com/wp-admin/install and ther you must edit your details and this pic came from there.
    I hope I'm clear enough.
