Is there a page in Drupal 7 (or a module) that will show me what the name of the database is that the site is pointing to?

I know this can be done via settings.php, but I am setting up a build procedure that I can have lower level developers (or even non-developers) handle and a UI would be better. I recently had an issue with two sites pointing to the same database and it borked some things up. I want to add checking this setting to our build procedures.

I think this is what you are looking for:


Display the host and database name of the default database on the status report, toolbar (Drupal 7) and/or on the admin_menu bar if enabled (either Drupal 6 or 7) and/or in a block (to use with the admin module).

It is marked as dev but it looks like a simple use-case and I don't expect there should be any problems.

  • That is EXACTLY what I am looking for. Thx and green check box to you, Sir.

    I am also going to check out drupal.org/project/dbinfo, which was referenced as a related project.
