Questions:

I need to duplicate a table in MySQL, making the new table empty. That is, I need to copy only the structure of an existing table to a new one.

Answers:

Try the create table LIKE syntax.

create table users2 like users; 

This should give you an empty table (users2) with the same structure as the original (users).

There is also another way to create a empty table as existing table and you can use the following command also

create table a select * from users2 limit 0, 0;
