Can't drop MySQL database with bad name
Posted on 2011-09-18
When using the command line interface, I had a finger check in my "source" file and accidentally created a database with an apostrophe as the last character of the name. I have tried both command line source files and PHP MyAdmin to drop the database. It either gives me a syntax error on the statement or tells me no database with that name exists. It even gives me an error when I check the database in the PHP MyAdmin list and click the drop button.
Any idea on how I can kill this beast?
