To rename a table in phpMyAdmin, follow these steps:

  1. Open the phpMyAdmin tool by accessing it through your web browser.
  2. Select the database that contains the table you want to rename from the left-hand panel.
  3. Once you have chosen the database, a list of tables within that database will be displayed.
  4. Locate the table you wish to rename and click on it to open the table's structure.
  5. At the top of the table structure, you will see an option called "Operations" or "Modify Table." Click on this option.
  6. 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.
  7. After entering the new name, click on the "Go" button or a similar button to confirm the rename operation.
  8. 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.
