10.3. Destroying a Database

If you are the owner of the database mydb, you can destroy it using the SQL command


or the Unix shell script

% dropdb mydb

This action physically removes all of the Unix files associated with the database and cannot be undone, so this should only be done with a great deal of forethought.
