As the title says, I cannot drop an empty database. In PHPMyAdmin, the request says that it times out and from running it in bash it just goes on until I cancel it with mysqladmin -u root -p kill <pid>. Running use panel; then show tables; just displays Empty set (0.001 sec) What can I do to fix this? Thank you in advance.

  • can u try 'show databases;' can u see that db from that list? – noor syamiera Jun 11 '20 at 10:15

If I can remember correctly, I fixed it by setting the innodb_force_recovorey level or I just purged the mariadb package and restored from .sql files
