Database naming convention


#1

What is the industry standard way of naming a database =x cause i have a few dbs and the random inconsistent names are sometime confusing and irritating me.

PS: dreamhost should consider upgrading their discussion forum’s appearance. At this day and age, its a bit ugly.

I don’t know if there’s an industry standard, but I name my databases based upon domain and software. Like if I’m running WordPress on example.com: example_wp and my database server is db.example.com
