  1. Show a list of all databases in PostgreSQL vs MySQL
  2. Use or Change database in PostgreSQL vs MySQL
  3. Show schemas in PostgreSQL vs MySQL
  4. Show a list of all tables in PostgreSQL vs MySQL
  5. Describe table in PostgreSQL vs MySQL
  6. Show create table in PostgreSQL vs MySQL
  7. Show list of users or roles in PostgreSQL vs MySQL
