[MediaWiki-l] Reminder: Don't set $wgDBprefix when you're using Postgres

In the documentation of $wgDBprefix [0], it has been explicitly mentioned
that you should not set this if you're using Postgres as your DBMS since

We are depending on this assumption on new places now [1] and if you set
this, please unset and fix your database ASAP otherwise you end up with
some tables that have the prefix and some that don't which I assume
wouldn't be really fun.

Thank you for your understanding
