# importing required libraries
import mysql.connector
dataBase = mysql.connector.connect(
  host ="localhost",
  user ="user",
  passwd ="gfg"
# preparing a cursor object
cursorObject = dataBase.cursor()
# creating database
cursorObject.execute("CREATE DATABASE geeks4geeks")



The above program illustrates the creation of MySQL database geeks4geeks in which host-name is localhost, the username is user and password is gfg.
Let’s suppose we want to create a table in the database, then we need to connect to a database. Below is a program to create a table in the geeks4geeks database which was created in the above program.


# importing required library
import mysql.connector
# connecting to the database
dataBase = mysql.connector.connect(
                     host = "localhost",
                     user = "user",
                     passwd = "gfg",
                     database = "geeks4geeks"
# preparing a cursor object
cursorObject = dataBase.cursor()
# creating table 
studentRecord = """CREATE TABLE STUDENT (
                   NAME  VARCHAR(20) NOT NULL,
                   BRANCH VARCHAR(50),
                   ROLL INT NOT NULL,
                   SECTION VARCHAR(5),
                   AGE INT
# table created
# disconnecting from server
