In order to create table in database, you need at least one column;

CREATE TABLE new_table LIKE old_table;

 

CREATE TABLE ... LIKE to create a new empty new_table based on the definition of old_table, including any column attributes and indexes defined in the old_table.

firstname VARCHAR(30) NOT NULL,
lastname VARCHAR(30) NOT NULL,
email VARCHAR(50),
reg_date TIMESTAMP
)";
 
if ($conn->query($sql) === TRUE) {
    echo "Table lcNewTable created successfully";
} else {
    echo "Error creating table: " . $conn->error;
