MySQL Error :1007 SQLSTATE: HY000 (ER_DB_CREATE_EXISTS) Message: Can't create database '%s'; database exists

Error No. : #1008
Error Type : Server Error
Error Message: Can't drop database '%s'; database doesn't exist Server Error
MySQL 1008 Error DROP
MySQL 1008 Error DROP

This is again a very Trivial MySQL error. The Server returns error code 1008 i.e. ER_DB_DROP_EXISTS when you try to execute a DROP Command to delete a database that does not exist.

SQL query:
drop database mydb
MySQL said: Documentation

#1008 - Can't drop database 'mydb'; database doesn't exist 

If you have a script that contains DROP command check if its getting executed twice or the database really exists.
