I'm a newbie in plugin development. I tried following this documentation: https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/register_activation_hook

I've created a function on the main plugin file (wp-content/plugin-folder/plugin.php). It creates the MySQL tables upon plugin activation.

CODE:

<?php
function create_db() {

 global $wpdb;

 $table_names = [
     $wpdb->prefix . "banks",
     $wpdb->prefix . "roles",
     $wpdb->prefix . "levels",
     $wpdb->prefix . "training_areas",
     $wpdb->prefix . "disciplines",
     $wpdb->prefix . "themes",
     $wpdb->prefix . "subjects",
     $wpdb->prefix . "fields",
     $wpdb->prefix . "modalities",
     $wpdb->prefix . "difficulties",
     $wpdb->prefix . "questions"
 ];

 $charset_collate = $wpdb->get_charset_collate();

 $sqls = [
     "CREATE TABLE $table_name[0](
     id INT(9) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
     name VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
     time datetime DEFAULT '0000-00-00 00:00:00'  NOT NULL,
     PRIMARY KEY  (id)
     ) $charset_collate;",

     "CREATE TABLE $table_name[1](
     id INT(9) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
     name VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,

     PRIMARY KEY  (id)
     ) $charset_collate;",

     "CREATE TABLE $table_name[2](

  ];

  require_once(ABSPATH . 'wp-admin/includes/upgrade.php');

  foreach ($sqls as $sql) {
     dbDelta($sql);
  }
}

register_activation_hook(__FILE__, 'create_db');

Sorry Guys I've created a array $table_names and used $table_name in my sql statements.

thanks!
