In this article, we would like to show you how to DROP database in PostgreSQL.

Quick solution:

DROP DATABASE "database_name";

DROP DATABASE example

In this example, we will drop database named diraskDB.

Query:

DROP DATABASE "diraskDB";

DROP DATABASE IF EXISTS example

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

Query:

DROP DATABASE IF EXISTS "diraskDB";

Popular error

If you try to drop database that doesn't exist with DROP DATABASE query you will get an error:

PostgreSQL - SQL Error: Can't drop database 'database_name'
PostgreSQL - SQL Error: Can't drop database 'database_name'

If you try to DROP DATABASE IF EXISTS you will get a warning instead:

PostgreSQL - Note: Can't drop database 'database_name'
PostgreSQL - Note: Can't drop database 'database_name'
