I want to change data base name according to me is it possible

Hi ,

After bench get-app frappe , When we create new site , it will prompt for database password, so it is creating database and installing frappe.
who is giving the database name bench or frappe ( it may be random name or it may be generating with new name )
So as per my requirement, i want to have my own name to database.
so that should be reflected in site_config.json file also.

if that is possible can you guide me , how to do it.

Database name is hash value of your site name.

Explore new-site command in frappe’s command.py

Hi Saurabh,

yes it is the hash value of my site name.
I have verified it is using SHA-1 hash and first sixteen digit of your database name is our site name.

sitename is site1.local
This is my db name 1bd3e0294da191981 .

Original text site1.local
Original bytes 73:69:74:65:31:2e:6c:6f:63:61:6c (length=11)

try bench new-site --help. If there is an option for naming the db at creation time, it should show up
