MySQL 5.5 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  SHOW CREATE DATABASE Syntax

13.7.5.8 SHOW CREATE DATABASE Syntax

SHOW CREATE {DATABASE | SCHEMA} [IF NOT EXISTS] db_name

Shows the CREATE DATABASE statement that creates the named database. If the SHOW statement includes an IF NOT EXISTS clause, the output too includes such a clause. SHOW CREATE SCHEMA is a synonym for SHOW CREATE DATABASE.

mysql> SHOW CREATE DATABASE test\G
*************************** 1. row ***************************
       Database: test
Create Database: CREATE DATABASE `test`
                 /*!40100 DEFAULT CHARACTER SET latin1 */

mysql> SHOW CREATE SCHEMA test\G
*************************** 1. row ***************************
       Database: test
Create Database: CREATE DATABASE `test`
                 /*!40100 DEFAULT CHARACTER SET latin1 */

SHOW CREATE DATABASE quotes table and column names according to the value of the sql_quote_show_create option. See Section 5.1.7, “Server System Variables”.
