We use the COUNT() function in MySQL to count a number of rows in a column satisfying the WHERE clause.

Syntax:

COUNT([column_name])
Parameters: COUNT() function accepts a single parameter as mentioned above and described below.
  • column_name: Column’s name from which we have to return the count value.

Module Installation: Install the mysql module using the following command:

npm install mysql

Database: Our SQL publishers table preview with sample data is shown below:

Example 1: Count publishers having id greater than 5

index.js

const mysql = require("mysql");
  
let db_con  = mysql.createConnection({
    host: "localhost",
    user: "root",
    password: '',
    database: 'gfg_db'
});
  
db_con.connect((err) => {
    if (err) {
      console.log("Database Connection Failed !!!", err);
      return;
    }
  
    console.log("We are connected to gfg_db database");
  
    // Here is the query
    let query = "SELECT COUNT(id) AS id_count FROM publishers WHERE id > 5";
  
    db_con.query(query, (err, rows) => {
        if(err) throw err;
  
        console.log(rows);
    });
});
