Delete ALL MySQL/MariaDB tables at once
Was playing with the wordpress tables and screwed up. Needed then to delete all the existing tables of the database, but didn’t want to do it one by one..
Here is a snippet that may be helpful for such tasks.
mysql -u USER -p PASSWORD -D DATABASE -e "show tables" -s | egrep "^wp_" | xargs -I "@@" echo mysql -u USER -p PASSWORD -D DATABASE-e "DROP TABLE @@"
Change the USER, PASSWORD and DATABASE accordingly. And there is no space after the -P for the password
