Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
chose the database you want on the left side.
It should come up in the main area under four tabs that say "Structure, SQL, Export, Search, Query"
Put a check in the checkbox next to the database name.
under that area is a list box that defaults to "With Selected:"
Choose Drop from the list and click the Yes button to confirm.
Go to the bottom of the list of tables and you will see a link saying "select all" click this and a tick will appear in the checkbox next to each table. There will be a drop down list at the very botton of the list of tables. From there select drop.
This will then brop all tables from your database. Click reload mysql from th enext page and click home. Now select your dataase from the list (at the left) again. It will again open in the main window, but this time there will be no tables. There should be a link "drop database [databasename]" If you click this your db will be removed. In some versiond of phpmyadmin it will ask you to confirm.
I am assuming you have enough permissions to remove it, because you created it.
When you click on your databae from the left menu you should see...
¦Structure¦ ¦SQL¦ ¦Export¦ ¦Search¦ ¦Query¦ ¦Operations¦ ¦Drop¦
This will appear right above your other options.
Click drop and it will ask you to confirm.
The word drop should appear in red.
Hope this helps.
What I find is when I drop the tables.. then go back and view the database again in main window, the drop opron apears as a tab right above the db information area.
