mysql_drop_db -- Drop (delete) a MySQL database


bool mysql_drop_db ( string database_name [, resource link_identifier])

mysql_drop_db() attempts to drop (remove) an entire database from the server associated with the specified link identifier.

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

For downward compatibility mysql_dropdb() can also be used. This is deprecated, however.

Note: The function mysql_drop_db() is deprecated. It is preferable to use mysql_query() to issue a SQL DROP DATABASE statement instead.


This function will not be available if the MySQL extension was built against a MySQL 4.x client library

See also mysql_query().
