Remove database tables

You can remove, or drop, existing tables from a database. This is usually recommended before importing a new database or restoring a backup.

Warning: Before dropping your database tables, ensure that you have a backup of the database.
  1. Sign in to phpMyAdmin.
  2. In the left-hand column, select the database you want to use.
  3. You should see a list of all your database tables.
  4. Check the Check All box.

    Note: You can drop specific tables by checking individual boxes next to the table names.

  5. From the drop down next to the Check All box, select Drop.
  6. Select Yes, when prompted with "Do you really want to execute the following query?"
  7. Select Yes to drop the tables.
