DROP EVENT

This MySQL statement deletes an event.

Syntax

Below is the syntax for this command. Text within square brackets (i.e, [ and ] ) are optional. Choices are separated by bars (i.e, | ). Ellipses preceded by a comma indicates a repeating pattern. Ellipses before or after syntax are used to highlight a relevant except from the larger syntax. Text displayed in italic letters represent text that should be replaced with the specific names related to the database (e.g., column with the name of the column).

DROP EVENT [IF EXISTS] event

Explanation

This statement deletes an event. The IF EXISTS keyword prevents error messages when the event doesn't exist. Instead, a note will be generated, which can be displayed afterward by executing the SHOW WARNINGS statement. As version 5.1.12 of MySQL, this statement requires the EVENT privilege.
