Find a table by name in MariaDB database

The query below finds tables with a specific name in all databases (schemas).


select table_schema as database_name,
from information_schema.tables
where table_type = 'BASE TABLE'
    and table_name = 'your table name'
order by table_schema;


  • database_name - name of the database (schema) where the table was found
  • table_name - name of the table found (redundant as it should be exactly the same as provided)


  • One row: represents one table
  • Scope of rows: all tables found
  • Ordered by: database (schema) name


  • There might be more than one table because different databases (schemas) could contain tables with the same names
