To rename a table in phpMyAdmin, follow these steps:
- Open the phpMyAdmin tool by accessing it through your web browser.
- Select the database that contains the table you want to rename from the left-hand panel.
- Once you have chosen the database, a list of tables within that database will be displayed.
- Locate the table you wish to rename and click on it to open the table's structure.
- At the top of the table structure, you will see an option called "Operations" or "Modify Table." Click on this option.
- On the next page, you will find a text field labeled "Rename table to." Enter the new name you want to give to the table in this field.
- After entering the new name, click on the "Go" button or a similar button to confirm the rename operation.
- phpMyAdmin will then execute the query to rename the table, and you will see a success message if the renaming was successful.
Please note that renaming a table may affect any scripts or applications that rely on the old table name, so be cautious and make the necessary adjustments in your code accordingly.
