Mysql Error : Table 'xxxxx' Already Exists

Recommended Posts

I received an error message when trying to do a software installation:

 

MySQL Error : Table 'xxxxx' already exists

 

But when I look in cpanel > MySQL Databases I don't see the tables.

 

Where or how would I view the tables?

At the bottom of MySql click on phpMyAdmin

click on the database at the left

and you will see the tables.

Thanks I found the table I was looking for.

 

How would I delete a single table? Does the "Drop" icon delete a table??

Yes, the Drop command would delete the table. I would suggest making a backup of the database before making any changes.

I noticed that each table within phpMyAdmin has two links. What is the difference between the two? Each one takes me to a page that has a "Drop" icon.

A quick backup can be done in cpanel > backup > download database

 

What I was referring to in post #5 is shown in the attached image.

 

What is the difference between the pages that the image icon takes you to versus the page that the text link takes you to?

If there are any rows in the table, then clicking on the icon to the left of the table name will display the rows. Clicking on the table name will display the structure.
