How can we delete an existing MySQL table by using PHP script?

MySQLMySQLi DatabasePHP

As we know that PHP provides us the function named mysql_query to delete an existing MySQL table.

Example

To illustrate this we are deleting a table named ‘Tutorials_tbl’ with the help of PHP script in the following example −

<html>
   <head>
      <title>Creating MySQL Tables</title>
   </head>
   <body>
      <?php
         $dbhost = 'localhost:3036';
         $dbuser = 'root';
         $dbpass = 'rootpassword';
         $conn = mysql_connect($dbhost, $dbuser, $dbpass);
         
         if(! $conn ) {
            die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
         }
         echo 'Connected successfully<br />';
         $sql = "DROP TABLE tutorials_tbl";
         mysql_select_db( 'TUTORIALS' );
         $retval = mysql_query( $sql, $conn );
         
         if(! $retval ) {
             die('Could not delete table: ' . mysql_error());
         }
         echo "Table deleted successfully\n";
         mysql_close($conn);
      ?>
   </body>
</html>
