MySQL Error Invalid Table or Database Name

We upgraded our MySQL server recently which ran several Joomla web sites

After the upgrade we discovered the following error in the mysql log files

090425 23:10:52 [ERROR] Invalid (old?) table or database name 'database-name'

It turns out MySQL does not like the use of - in database names.

One solution is to rename the MySQL database changing the - to an _

Then update the mysql dictionary

UPDATE mysql.db SET Db = 'database_name' WHERE Db = 'database\-name';
