DROP DATABASE

Drops a database.

Note

This command does not drop remote storage databases. To do that, use DETACH DATABASE.

Syntax

DROP DATABASE [IF EXISTS] <database_name> [FORCE]
DROP SCHEMA [IF EXISTS] <database_name> [FORCE]

Remarks

  • <database_name> is the name of a SingleStore local storage database.

  • By default, the DROP DATABASE command waits for the running queries to finish before dropping the database. To override this behavior and kill any running queries, use the FORCE option.

  • This command can be run on the master aggregator node, or a child aggregator node when DDL Forwarding is enabled. See Node Requirements for SingleStore Commands).

  • This command causes implicit commits. See COMMIT for more information.

  • This command cannot be run on system databases.

  • This command drops the Point-In-Time Recovery (PITR) history. A database cannot be restored to the PITR milestone taken before the database was dropped.

  • Refer to the Permission Matrix for the required permission.

Examples

DROP DATABASE IF EXISTS test;
DROP DATABASE IF EXISTS db FORCE;
