@nacin - sorry buddy as per message on #29006 - this refers to the same file, so I can see why this has happened - but they are 2 separate patches ;)

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release

We can review this in 4.1. Sounds like worthwhile edits, though they may benefit from a further tweak before landing.

I'm not sure how much the currently proposed changes will make the process fundamentally easier to understand. Maybe this could be one of the yearly A/B user tests at WordCamp US

It's always(!) a good idea to change the Table Prefix.

See (Security through obscurity)

Change the table_prefix: Many published WordPress-specific SQL-injection attacks make the assumption that the table_prefix is wp_, the default. Changing this can block at least some SQL injection attacks.

What about:

"Changing this to something unique is recommended, if using multiple WordPress installations in a single database it is required."
