Creating a Database in PHP


How To Create a Database in PHP?



A database in a MySQL server is a logical container used to group tables and other data objects together as a unit. If you are the administrator of the server, you can create and delete databases using the CREATE/DROP DATABASE statements. The following PHP script shows you how to create and drop a database called "fyi":

  $con = mysql_connect('localhost');
  $sql = 'CREATE DATABASE fyi';
  if (mysql_query($sql, $con)) {
    print("Database fyi created.\n");
  } else {
    print("Database creation failed.\n");

  $sql = 'DROP DATABASE fyi';
  if (mysql_query($sql, $con)) {
    print("Database fyi dropped.\n");
  } else {
    print("Database drop failed.\n");

If you run this script, you will get something like this:

Database fyi created.
Database fyi dropped.
