MySQL Create

The CREATE DATABASE statement is used to create a database in MySQL:
1
CREATE DATABASE database_name
To get PHP to execute the statement above you should use the mysql_query() function. This function is used to send a query or command to a MySQL connection.
This example code shows how to create a database named “my_db”:

<?php
 
$con = mysql_connect("localhost","peter","abc123");
 
if (!$con)
 
  {
 
  die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
 
  }
 
if (mysql_query("CREATE DATABASE my_db",$con))
 
  {
 
  echo "Database created";
 
  }
 
else
 
  {
 
  echo "Error creating database: " . mysql_error();
  }
 
mysql_close($con);
 
?>
To create a table in mysql, use The CREATE TABLE statement:
CREATE TABLE table_name

(

column_name1 data_type,

column_name2 data_type,

column_name3 data_type,

....

)
Also, the CREATE TABLE statement should be added to the mysql_query() function in order to execute the command.
The following example creates a table named "Persons", with three columns. The column names will be "FirstName", "LastName" and "Age":

if (!$con)
 
  {
 
  die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
 
  }
 
// Create database
 
if (mysql_query("CREATE DATABASE my_db",$con))
 
  {
 
  echo "Database created";
 
  }
 
else
 
  {
 
  echo "Error creating database: " . mysql_error();
 
  }
 
// Create table
 
mysql_select_db("my_db", $con);
 
$sql = "CREATE TABLE Persons
 
(
 
FirstName varchar(15),
 
LastName varchar(15),
 
Age int
 
)";
 
// Execute query
 
mysql_query($sql,$con);
 
mysql_close($con);
