How to delete my table in php my admin?
« on: June 19, 2023, 01:54:06 PM »
Follow these simple steps :

Open phpMyAdmin in your web browser.
Select the database that contains the table you want to delete from the list on the left-hand side of the screen. If you're unsure which database the table is in, you can check your application's configuration files or contact your administrator.
Once you've selected the correct database, you will see a list of tables within that database.
Locate the table you want to delete and click on it to select it.
After selecting the table, you will be taken to the table's structure view.
In the structure view, you will see a set of tabs at the top. Click on the "Operations" tab.
Scroll down to the "Table options" section in the Operations tab.
In the "Table options" section, you will find a button labeled "Drop the table (DROP)." Click on this button.
A confirmation dialog box will appear, asking you to confirm the deletion. Read the message carefully to ensure you are deleting the correct table, as this action cannot be undone.
If you're sure you want to delete the table, click on the "OK" button in the confirmation dialog box.
phpMyAdmin will then execute the SQL command to drop the table from the database, and you will be redirected back to the main screen showing the list of tables in the database.

Please note that deleting a table will permanently remove all the data and structure associated with that table. Make sure to have a backup of your data before performing such an action, especially if the table contains important information.
