How can I the date of creation and updation of tables in MySQL?

MySQLMySQLi Database

Get the create and update tables exact date using the create_time or update_time in MySQL.

At first, use the SHOW command. The syntax is as follows

SHOW TABLE STATUS;

We are considering our database ‘test3’, which is already having some tables

mysql> use test3;
Database changed

Now use the following query to display all the tables in the database test3

mysql> show tables;

The following is the output

+-------------------------+
| Tables_in_test3         |

The query is as follows to determine the dates. This shows the table status

mysql> show table status;

The following is the output displaying the entire status of the table. With that, we can also see the information we needed, for example, the creation and update date of the tables
