Python MySQL – Create Database
  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 25 Nov, 2020

Python Database API ( Application Program Interface ) is the Database interface for the standard Python. This standard is adhered to by most Python Database interfaces. There are various Database servers supported by Python Database such as MySQL, GadFly, mSQL, PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server 2000, Informix, Interbase, Oracle, Sybase etc. To connect with MySQL database server from Python, we need to import the mysql.connector interface.
Syntax: 
 

CREATE DATABASE DATABASE_NAME

Example:
 

Python

filter_none

edit
close

play_arrow

link
brightness_4
code

# importing rquired libraries
import mysql.connector
 
dataBase = mysql.connector.connect(
  host ="localhost",
  user ="user",
  passwd ="gfg"
)
 
# preparing a cursor object
cursorObject = dataBase.cursor()
 
# creating database
cursorObject.execute("CREATE DATABASE geeks4geeks")

chevron_right


Output:
 

python-mysql-create-db



The above program illustrates the creation of MySQL database geeks4geeks in which host-name is localhost, the username is user and password is gfg.
Let’s suppose we want to create a table in the database, then we need to connect to a database. Below is a program to create a table in the geeks4geeks database which was created in the above program.
 

Python

filter_none

edit
close

play_arrow

link
brightness_4
code

# importing required library
import mysql.connector
 
# connecting to the database
dataBase = mysql.connector.connect(
                     host = "localhost",
                     user = "user",
                     passwd = "gfg",
                     database = "geeks4geeks"
 
# preparing a cursor object
cursorObject = dataBase.cursor()
 
# creating table 
studentRecord = """CREATE TABLE STUDENT (
                   NAME  VARCHAR(20) NOT NULL,
                   BRANCH VARCHAR(50),
                   ROLL INT NOT NULL,
                   SECTION VARCHAR(5),
                   AGE INT
                   )"""
 
# table created
cursorObject.execute(studentRecord) 
 
# disconnecting from server
dataBase.close()

chevron_right


Output:
 

PYTHON-MYSQL-CREATE-DB1
