Note:- Locate the database you’re about to rename and make a note of or recall the database user who has already been allocated to it.

4. Change the name of the “Database” by clicking on it. Select the “Remain Option”.

5. After clicking on the Rename, you’ll be redirected to a screen where you can choose a “New name”, Click the Proceed button after entering the new name.
