(PHP 4, PHP 5)

mysql_drop_dbDrop (delete) a MySQL database

Description

bool mysql_drop_db ( string $database_name [, resource $link_identifier = NULL ] )

mysql_drop_db() attempts to drop (remove) an entire database from the server associated with the specified link identifier. This function is deprecated, it is preferable to use mysql_query() to issue an sql DROP DATABASE statement instead.

Parameters

database_name

The name of the database that will be deleted.

link_identifier

The MySQL connection. If the link identifier is not specified, the last link opened by mysql_connect() is assumed. If no such link is found, it will try to create one as if mysql_connect() was called with no arguments. If no connection is found or established, an E_WARNING level error is generated.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Examples

Example #1 mysql_drop_db() alternative example

<?php
$link 
mysql_connect('localhost''mysql_user''mysql_password');
if (!
$link) {
    die(
'Could not connect: ' mysql_error());
}

$sql 'DROP DATABASE my_db';
if (
mysql_query($sql$link)) {
    echo 
"Database my_db was successfully dropped\n";
} else {
    echo 
'Error dropping database: ' mysql_error() . "\n";
}
?>
