> My events table has: id (primary key/index (Is this necessary?))

Yes. A table without a PK isn't a real table. Re-read EF Codd's 12 rules.

> I got the table set up right

That depends on two sets of factors (i) how accurately & thoroughly it matches the requirement (ii) how sound it is as SQL. We have too little info to evaluate (i); (ii) looks ok as far as it goes, but we'd need to see the actaul SQL, then you'll need to test it, following a process like that described in


I am having trouble getting all of the events table information into the database. - The query is wrong.

Here is my current query, I hope this is sufficient information to get some help.

"INSERT INTO events(title, description, dateHappens, createdOn) VALUES(?,?,?,?)";

and I am trying to insert the data like this:

($user->getTitle(), $user->getDesc(), $user->getHappens(), NOW()));

We'd need to see the code that's executing. So do you. To do that, have your script echo the sql it's generating, then play with that code in the mysql client program to see what problems need fixing.

> In the sql query how do I get the referenced id primary key in the events table data?

Given a specific value, you need to have stored it in a PHP variable, say $userid, then query the events table with "select ... from events ... where user_id=$userid ...";
