Part D - Create Database

In a browser, go to the URL for the createtables.php file (eg, http://www.yourdomain.com/calendar/createtables.php). This step creates the database tables, and give you a link to the calendar if successful.


Your phpEventCalendar setup is now complete.
View your calendar at: http://www.yourdomain.com/calendar

Login to the calendar (link is at bottom) with the default user:

username: admin
