RE: table prefix instead of database
Hi serakfalcon,

I wondered the same (see http://www.weberp.org/forum/showthread.php?tid=973).

My own thoughts as per that thread were that perhaps in some automated install process for a hosting company, pre-pending database with user name might be done. Although I can't picture an actual use case. One could just add the prefix in the database name in the installer. I'd be interested to hear of some use cases too.
