Refactoring Rails - Project Name


I would like to refactor the name of my project and am wondering if
anyone has done this before (and if there’s an easy way)? I know
there will be updates to the database.yml for DB names, along with
environments.rb, etc.

The piece that makes me nervous is any underlying conventions that
rely on the name of the project.

Any advice?


Hi Pete.

There is no dependency on the project name. Plain simple as that.

Ok, cool, thanks!

Would it also be correct that if I update the database.yml file, I can
re-run migrations with a new DB name (as long as I create it?)

Will doing this update my schema.rb?
