I was wondering if there was ever going to be a change to the application install process where we can name the database ourselves? We're coming up against issues with Wordpress site databases having the same three first letters when they're installing and having to come up with ever more creative ways of naming the databases

Our current installer system doesn't allow for that specifically. We might change that in the future, but I can't speculate as to when that might happen.

If you want to write your own Wordpress installer, you could use the "extra info" parameter to specify the database name.
