mysql_create_db() attempts to create a new database on the server associated with the specified link identifier.
Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.
Example 1. MySQL create database example
For downwards compatibility mysql_createdb() can also be used. This is deprecated, however.
Note: The function mysql_create_db() is deprecated. It is preferable to use mysql_query() to issue a SQL CREATE DATABASE Statement instead.
This function will not be available if the MySQL extension was built against a MySQL 4.x client library.
See also mysql_query().
