It is very easy to drop a MySQL database:
drop database database_name
Tons of blogs and articles online mention this command. Recently, however, I came across a database name which had spaces in them. For example:
company balances electronics inventory store employees ...
If I do:
drop database company balances
MySQL would complain that the databases company and balances do not exists. Naturally, the first thought on my mind was to enclose them the database.
