Dropping or deleting a database

Deleting a database

You can delete a database created on DreamHost through on the MySQL Databases page.

To the right of the database, click the red Delete DB button.

The recycle bin

Deleted Databases are moved to the recycle bin. You can access this by clicking the MySQL Recycle Bin button on the top left of the page. This allows for easy restoration of databases that are mistakenly deleted.

Databases are stored here for 30 days. After 30 days, they are permanently deleted. 

What happens to the database user?

If the user for the database you deleted is NOT assigned to any other database, it will also be deleted along with the database.
