Following is the query to show databases sorted by creation date −

mysql> SELECT
   -> TABLE_SCHEMA AS ALL_DATABASE_NAME,
   -> MAX(create_time) AS creationTime,
   -> MAX(update_time) updatingTime
   -> FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES
   -> GROUP BY ALL_DATABASE_NAME
   -> ORDER BY creationTime DESC;

This will produce the following output −

+---------------------+---------------------+---------------------+
| ALL_DATABASE_NAME   | creationTime        | updatingTime        |
+---------------------+---------------------+---------------------+
