After considerable content input, I'd like to change the name of one of my templates. I named it a confusing name when I created it.

When I first set SS up I did this and it caused a lot of sub pages to break. I ended up deleting them and starting over since I wasn't very far into the process, but this time I'm pretty far down the content rabbit hole.

Can this just be done from PHPMyAdmin?


EDIT - For the record, I was just going about it all wrong. I was trying to change the names of the template and controller files instead of creating new template and controller files, changing page templates and then deleting the old ones.

Problem resolved.
