# Create Database¶

CREATE (DATABASE|SCHEMA) [IF NOT EXISTS] db_name
[COMMENT comment_text]
[LOCATION path]
[WITH DBPROPERTIES (key1=val1, key2=val2, ...)]


Create a database. If a database with the same name already exists, an exception will be thrown.

IF NOT EXISTS
If a database with the same name already exists, nothing will happen.
LOCATION
If the specified path does not already exist in the underlying file system, this command will try to create a directory with the path. When the database is dropped later, this directory will be deleted.
