hi, I am new here and sorry to ask this simple question.

I have installed Magento, setup most of the things including categories/products and so far so good.
I need to change the Store Name from the default My Website Store in System->Manage Store, to my own store name.
Similarly for the Website Name.

Will it crash the whole thing?
This is what I am worrying about as I have read someone crashed the whole thing after changing the base url.

Please help.

Thank you.

Changing your store name through the admin is not like changing the base url.  You should definitely not change the base url after you have installed your store.

Is the “base url” stored in some sort of url cache? ... what if you clear the var/cache directory?

I would assume the store view id rather than the base code itself would be used in any database relations, no?
