So first we have to check what unique key name we have given some time its different from column name.

SHOW INDEX FROM users;

Once you run the above command you will get this output like below.

coderuck-mysql-uniquekey-1

As you can users_email_unique is the unique key name for email column.

Now we will run the following mysql command to remove it.

ALTER TABLE users DROP INDEX users_email_unique
