Seeing indexes in a MySQL table

To show indexes on a MySQL table use any of the following commands in a MySQL client:

SHOW INDEX FROM table_name
or
SHOW INDEX IN table_name

SHOW INDEXES FROM table_name
or
SHOW INDEXES IN table_name

SHOW KEYS FROM table_name
or
SHOW KEYS IN table_name

Replace table_name with the actual table name. You can optionally append the following clause at the end of any query above to select the database to use.

FROM db_name
or
IN db_name

Replace db_name with the database name.
