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.
