Syntax

DROP {DATABASE | SCHEMA} [IF EXISTS] db_name

Description

DROP DATABASE drops all tables in the database and deletes the database. Be very careful with this statement! To use DROP DATABASE, you need the DROP privilege on the database. DROP SCHEMA is a synonym for DROP DATABASE.

Important: When a database is dropped, user privileges on the database are not automatically dropped. See GRANT.

IF EXISTS is used to prevent an error from occurring if the database does not exist.
