MySQL show tables - How do I list the tables in a MySQL database?


MySQL FAQ: How do I show/list the tables in a MySQL (or MariaDB) database (using the mysql command line client)?
To list/show the tables in a MySQL database:
  1. Log into your database using the mysql command line client
  2. Issue the use command to connect to your desired database (such as, use mydatabase)
  3. Use the MySQL show tables command, like this:
show tables;

MySQL ‘show tables’: A complete example

Here’s a slightly longer explanation. First, connect to your MySQL database using your MySQL client from your operating system command line:
$ mysql -u user1 -p
Next, after you're logged into your MySQL database, tell MySQL which database you want to use:
mysql> use kk;
Now issue the MySQL show tables command to list the tables in the current database:
mysql> show tables;
For instance, if I issue this MySQL show tables command in one of my example MySQL databases, I'll see this output:
mysql> show tables;
+-----------------------+
| Tables_in_kk |
+-----------------------+
| crust_sizes           | 
| crust_types           | 
| customers             | 
+-----------------------+
3 rows in set (0.00 sec)
That’s how you show the tables in the MySQL database using the MySQL command line client.
