Python MySQL Delete

Python MySQL DELETE statement is used to delete the specific record or all the records from the database table.

Example:

In this example we will delete student record whose id is 10.

import mysql.connector
mydb = mysql.connector.connect(

	host="localhost",
	user="root",
	password="root21",
	database = "demodb",
    port = 3308
	
)
cursor = mydb.cursor()
cursor.execute('DELETE FROM students WHERE id = 10')
mydb.commit()
print(cursor.rowcount, "row deleted.")

Output will be:- I row deleted.

Note:- As you can see in above example, mydb.commit() is required to make changes in database.

Delete All Records:

To delete all the records from the database, you have to omit the where clause.

Example:

import mysql.connector
mydb = mysql.connector.connect(

	host="localhost",
	user="root",
	password="root21",
	database = "demodb",
    port = 3308
	
)
cursor = mydb.cursor()
cursor.execute('DELETE FROM students')
mydb.commit()
print(cursor.rowcount, "row deleted.")

Note:- You have to always careful about WHERE CLAUSE because if omit to use the where clause in the delete statement it will delete all the records from the database table.
