0 points
Created by:

In this article, we would like to show you how to create database in MySQL.

Quick solution:

CREATE DATABASE `database_name`;

CREATE DATABASE example

In this example, we will create a new database - diraskDB.

Query:

CREATE DATABASE `diraskDB`;

CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXISTS example

You can optionally add IF NOT EXISTS statement, so if the database already exists you won't get an error.

Query:

CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXISTS `diraskDB`;

Note:

CREATE SCHEMA is a synonym for CREATE DATABASE so you can use it alternately.

Popular error

If you try to create a database that already exists with CREATE DATABASE query you will get an error:

MySQL - SQL Error: Can't create database..
MySQL - SQL Error: Can't create database..

If you try to CREATE DATABASE IF NOT EXIST you will get a warning instead:

MySQL - Note: Can't create database..
MySQL - Note: Can't create database..
