    I am having problems dropping a database (spoono_db). There are no fields / tables in the database and I log into MySQL and type:

    Code:
    drop database spoono_db
    And it gives me the error message:

    Code:
    Error dropping database <can't rmdir '.\spoono_db\', errno: 17>
    What does this mean and how can I get it to drop the database? Any help would be appreciated, thanks guys!

    I found this during a google search:
    http://www.idevelopment.info/data/My...on/DBA_2.shtml

    It appears that if the directory containing your table files also contain non table files, you will get this error. Apparently, you can remedy this bying opening the directory in question, manually delete the remaining files, and then the directory.
    (Never experienced this myself though, but it's worth a try).
