I think you could rename it directly from the source. In Mandrake, the databases we create with mysql are stored at /var/lib/mysql, so you database should be at "/var/lib/mysql/example", simply move it :

Code:
mv /var/lib/mysql/example /var/lib/mysql/examp
Regards!

hmmmm, I guess so. though, if you are going to add/remove tables, then it's better to do the sql way. Rename the database as I described above, then run mysql:

Code:
mysql> use examp
to change into your database. The rest is pure sql as usual. I'd also recommend Webmin to administrate your database
