    Why does cPanel not allow a MySQL database name with two underscores. For example. The account name is forum, so it will prefix the db with forum_ . The db I want to import into that account is vb_forum. So the full db name would be forum_vb_forum. It appears not to allow another underscore. But I can create the db forum_vb_forum at the mysql command line and it shows in phpMyAdmin in cPanel. This is most odd.
