I only have one website now , but multiple installs to a subdomain have left their mark.
They were created by opencart MySQL.
I'll like to safety delete some of them. How do I determine which ones to delete.
The only options I have are Rename or Delete

You might want to check your existing site's configuration file to make sure you know the name of the database still in use. Once you know that, the others can be killed with the Delete button.

Making this sort of change, to be safe, it wouldn't hurt to run a Full Website Backup, first. You can never have too many backups. ;)

I done backups, in my config file it shows _oc3 been used, then tried myPhP to rename the other Db's but it wants to recreate with a new name.
All I want is to disable them by adding _xxX.OLD
Is there another way through the file manager?
