Scheduler setup
Bug-A-Boo needs, for several reasons like email sending, its scheduler to be called in a short period of time regularly.
We recommend you to do so at least every 5 minutes or even better every minute. This ensures that for example an user who registers to your Bug-A-Boo site, gets his password send by email quickly.

On your Linux web hosting server add another line to your cron table. It should look similar to this one

*/1 * * * * /usr/bin/tdbengine /var/www/bug-a-boo/schedul/schedul.prg

The first path (/usr/bin/tdbengine) points to your tdbengine binary. It depends on the location you chose when you installed it.
The second one (/var/www/bug-a-boo/schedul/schedul.prg) is the full path information for your Bug-A-Boo's location on the web server plus the subpath schedul/ and the schedul.prg.

Everytime the schedul.prg is executed it reads its configuration from the schedul.ini.

The schedul.ini in ./ini/ should look similar to this.

[schedul]
program_1=mailman.prg
dir_1=../schedul/
next_start_1=29.06.2004 08:28
every_min_1=1

[log]
loglevel=0

Normally you should not have any need to change this, so you better leave it alone.

This tells the scheduler to call the mailman.prg every minute (to check whether there are any emails to be send).
