Just installed Mediwiki 1.8.1 on my own server, and I’m sure it said the reason it offered me a table prefix option was for multiple wikis on the same Db.

I’ll remove LocalSettings.php and check.

Scrub that I’ve got my paradigms mixed up – it’s for multiple installations and not for multi-wiki management.

My apologies – delete and revoke all my privs!

I don’t think I can ever forgive you.

Done (messily).
