How to set up database for scheduler (php)

I need to add a database and tables to support the scheduler - how?

events aren’t saving to the database…

Check samples/01_initialization_loading/05_loading_mysql.html

Puzzling. I examined “samples/01_initialization_loading/05_loading_mysql.html” and while slightly different than mine, saw nothing that made my database connection function properly.

There are 3 components

a) client side init ( as in above mentioned sample )
b) database feed ( events.php in case of above sample )
c) database itself

You can start by loading data feed ( events.php ) directly in browser - if it work correctly you will see the data xml, if there are some error it may contain extended info about the error ( most probably it is result of incorrect db connection settings, or misspelled table|field names )
