Error "Table Prefix" must not be empty."


I have command line access only to my sql database on wordpress vps. I am ssh’ing into it and was wondering if I don’t have phpMyAdmin is there any way to view the table prefix for my database.

I need this value because I am installing Wordpress and getting an error that my table prefix value must not be empty.

The default is ‘wp_’ from wp-config.php however it will not take for the installation.

It may be a different value if I could view it.

Do I need phpMyAdmin to view this ?

Thank you very much for any reply.
