Default ISPConfig Database Configuration

I've installed ISPConfig recently and everything seems to be working fine. I have yet to find any errors or faults as I have not really added much domains using ISPConfig.

However, I did notice that whenever I created a database for a site, it added the database with prefix web[integer]_db[integer] and the database user with prefix web[integer]_u[integer].

Is there a way to customise this? I've cleared the User Prefix option (leaving it blank) in Management -> System Config -> Settings -> ISP Manager. This does not seem to affect the database prefix at all. Since we are in that page, is the tab Common supposed to be blank?

What I wanted is to simply create the database and user using the domain name, ie. MySQL DB = "mydomain.com" and MySQL User = "mydomain.com"

Where can I define or customise this option in ISPConfig. Is there some sort of template or configuration files that I can edit to change the default prefixes/settings of ISPConfig at all.

Thanks in advanced for any help given.

No, not without changing the scripts that create the databases.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

Sorry for double posting, I didn't saw this subject before answering.

You're sure that's impossible without editing main scripts? Because I think I found a way, please check my post:
