support naming application folders and databases arbitrarily
The current scheme is absolutely impossible to remember. Even when renaming folders, the randomly selected name remains as the new name is a link.
That means this would have to be asked for before anything has been set up.
Usually I want to name the folder and database to the (sub)domain or the actual application name. What's easier to remember than that?
Support at least letters, digits, "-", "_", ".", unless restricted by the database engine in question.
I completely agree. The random string of letters are just incoherent and it would be good to rename it to something that's customized to the app or website.
That way, it would be extremely easy to know by glance where to go and what is stored there.
