Hello all, I am a mysql newb. I am familiarising myself with phpmyadmin and created a test database on the server. I'd like to delete it but don't know how. I have checked around and have found how to do this. thanx

If you are using phpmyadmin click on your domain linked at the top: Server: example.com. Then on the list that comes up you will see Databases; click it. This will give you a list of all of the databases. Now select the check box near the database you want to remove and click the Drop button at the bottom of the screen.

HI eelix, when i click databases i get a list of the db's but there is no checkbox for me to select a db. I can only click the db name which loads the db? phpmyadmin running locally on my pc allows this. ? thanx

Also, I am using a cms called joomla which creates the database through a directory module to allow users to input business details into the databse. Could this be the reason that the db's i create can't be deleted? regards

>>>Could this be the reason that the db's i create can't be deleted? No.
I'm not quite sure what is wrong then. There are three ways that I see it: 1) You have another version of phpmyadmin that I am not familiar with 2) You are logged in with an account that does not have the permissions to drop databases 3) You are not looking in the correct place ;)
Other than this I do not think I can be of more help. Maybe someone else knows what you are experiencing?
