To rename a database in phpMyAdmin, you can follow these steps:

  1. Log in to phpMyAdmin using your username and password.
  2. Once logged in, you will see a list of databases on the left-hand side. Locate the database you want to rename and click on it.
  3. After clicking on the database, a list of tables within that database will appear in the main panel of phpMyAdmin.
  4. At the top of the page, you will see a menu bar with various options. Click on the "Operations" tab.
  5. In the "Operations" tab, you will see a section called "Rename database to." Enter the new name for the database in the provided field.
  6. Click on the "Go" button located at the bottom right corner of the page. This will execute the rename operation.
  7. phpMyAdmin will display a confirmation message indicating that the database has been renamed successfully.

Please note that renaming a database may have implications for any applications or scripts that are using that database. Make sure to update any relevant configuration files or code to reflect the new database name.
