Syntax

SHOW {DATABASES | SCHEMAS}
    [LIKE 'pattern' | WHERE expr]

Description

SHOW DATABASES lists the databases on the MariaDB server host. SHOW SCHEMAS is a synonym for SHOW DATABASES. The LIKE clause, if present on its own, indicates which database names to match. The WHERE and LIKE clauses can be given to select rows using more general conditions, as discussed in Extended SHOW.

You see only those databases for which you have some kind of privilege, unless you have the global SHOW DATABASES privilege. You can also get this list using the mysqlshow command.

If the server was started with the --skip-show-database option, you cannot use this statement at all unless you have the SHOW DATABASES privilege.

Example

SHOW DATABASES;
+--------------------+
| Database           |
+--------------------+
| information_schema |
| mysql              |
| performance_schema |
| test               |
+--------------------+
SHOW DATABASES LIKE 'm%';
+---------------+
| Database (m%) |
+---------------+
| mysql         |
+---------------+
