    also, it asks on installation about the table prefix. I just left it as is but if I go to my wp-config file can I change it? if yes will this damage any database files or anything? what can I change it to? does it have to be “wp_namehere” or can it be “namehere_ “?

    There are also a few really good, highly supported plugins that can help secure your site. BetterWPSecurity and WordFence both come to mind.
