DROP or DELETE Database

Syntax

  • MSSQL Syntax:
  • DROP DATABASE [ IF EXISTS ] { database_name | database_snapshot_name } [ ,...n ] [;]
  • MySQL Syntax:
  • DROP {DATABASE | SCHEMA} [IF EXISTS] db_name

Remarks

DROP DATABASE is used for dropping a database from SQL. Be sure to create a backup of your database before dropping it to prevent accidental loss of information.
