How do I delete a table in my MySQL database?

This article applies to 123-reg Linux Shared Hosting accounts.

Warning: Once a table has been deleted, there is no way to reverse the action unless you have a backup that you can restore the table from. Please be aware that it is your responsibility to keep an up to date back up of your databases as your 123-reg hosting package does not come with a backup service.

To delete a table from your database, please do the following:

1
