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.

Use IF EXISTS to prevent an error from occurring for databases that do not exist. A NOTE is generated for each non-existent database when using IF EXISTS. See SHOW WARNINGS.
