Description Chad H. 2008-06-03 14:08:03 UTC
On a Windows install of MW (using Apache2, mySQL 5.0.x, specifying a database prefix appears to do nothing. None of my tested installs (tried it about 3 times in a row now) ended up with the prefix.

Problem was a second DBprefix field in the installer, for the MS SQL-specific options.
This second field would be blank, overwriting the first submission from the MySQL-specific section.
Have renamed that field to DBprefix2, so it won't conflict.
Haven't tested on MSSQL of course. . . ;)

Fixed in r36107.
