Syntax

DROP SERVER [ IF EXISTS ] server_name

Description

Drops the server definition for the server named server_name. The corresponding row within the mysql.servers table will be deleted. This statement requires the SUPER privilege.

Dropping a server for a table does not affect any FederatedX, FEDERATED or Spider tables that used this connection information when they were created.

IF EXISTS

If the IF EXISTS clause is used, MariaDB will not return an error if the server does not exist. Unlike all other statements, DROP SERVER IF EXISTS does not issue a note if the server does not exist. See MDEV-9400.

Examples

DROP SERVER s;

IF EXISTS:

DROP SERVER s;
ERROR 1477 (HY000): The foreign server name you are trying to reference 
  does not exist. Data source error:  s

DROP SERVER IF EXISTS s;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
