Hi Guys,

New to the forum, looking to follow the SQL Essential training course however right at the beginning when trying to remove the test database (that's in from the start after a fresh XAMPP install) I get this error!

BTW im on a mac

Any ideas?

This forum is a Microsoft SQL Server forum; so there would be very few if any who have expertise on MySQL. You would get better/faster/more accurate answers at a MySQL forum or a generalized DB forum.
