Let's do an SQL query using the CREATE DATABASE, after that, We will execute this SQL query by passing it to the PHP mysqli_query () function to finally create our database. 

Let's connect to DB and create myblog table look following example:



/* connect to db */
$link = mysqli_connect("localhost", "root", "");

// Check connection
if ($link === false) {
    die("ERROR: Could not connect. " . mysqli_connect_error());

// Attempt create database query execution
$sql = "CREATE DATABASE myblog";
if (mysqli_query($link, $sql)) {
    echo "Database created successfully";
} else {
    echo "ERROR: Could not able to execute $sql. " . mysqli_error($link);

// Close connection
