MySQL 8.3 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  SHOW CREATE DATABASE Statement

15.7.7.7 SHOW CREATE DATABASE Statement

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.

       Database: test
Create Database: CREATE DATABASE `test` /*!40100 DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8mb4
                 COLLATE utf8mb4_0900_ai_ci */ /*!80014 DEFAULT ENCRYPTION='N' */

mysql> SHOW CREATE SCHEMA test\G
