How to modify Multi-DB with custom DB name

So as a security measure I have replaced the default database table name with a custom name. I then saw the Multi-DB plugin and want to use it so my users can blog all day long. but got an error message indicating that the plugin is looking for the default database name.

Since I've downloaded the plugin, what line of what file should I change so that the plugin installs succesfully?

    Hey Nanakow,

    I hope you're doing well today and thank you for your question!

    Changing the db name (table name) shouldn't be an issue here but you need to be aware that the Multi-DB plugin installation process is a bit different than the typical plugin setup. It is essential that you've created your databases and configure everything before activating the plugin. The configuration process also requires a few more steps than in case of typical plugins.

    To install plugin please first make a full backup copy of your site (actually, the entire network) including db. Next you'll have to create new databases and setup a few parameters and then you'll be ready to activate plugin.

    Please head to this usage manual and follow the given steps strictly:
