In step 6/14, the connection has been established and the XOOPS database is configured. Using a name that has relevance to the site is suggested, particularly if there are several databases in use. XOOPS will prefix each name with the string contained in the next field, "Table Prefix" so a short prefix is suggested. This prefix can be changed later. The recommended option is to leave it as it is. Although the field in Figure 10 says “xef9”, the prefix added to every table is xef9_, with an underscore at the end. The Database character set and Database collation do not need to be changed.
