Create Database In MYSQL Using PHP Script Example; In this post, I will create a database in MySQL server with the take help of PHP script. This is very easy and simple to create a database using PHP. At the end of this post, you will find your question's answer on how to create a database in PHPMyAdmin using PHP code.

First we will connect MYSQL server with the PHP script using new mysqli(). In this, we have to pass on three arguments. The first argument is "SERVER NAME", the second argument is "USERNAME", and the Third argument is "PASSWORD". Using the if condition we will check whether the server successfully connected or not.

If the server is successfully connected then we will create a query "CREATE DATABASE {NEW DATABASE NAME}". This query we will run with the given connection. If the query execution return "TRUE" then the database was created successfully else not.

Let's see with an example using a PHP script to create a database in MYSQL.


$serverName = "localhost";
$username = "root";
$password = "";

// Create connection
$conn = new mysqli($serverName, $username, $password);

// Check connection
if ($conn->connect_error) {

    die("Connection failed: " . $conn->connect_error);

// Create database

if ($conn->query($sql) === TRUE) {

    echo "Database created successfully";
} else {

    echo "Error creating database: " . $conn->error;
