After the success of the MIGX TV video tutorial, I have been requested and PM'd by many to make one for MIGX DB. Well here it is! I hope you find this tutorial useful, its 22 minutes long and broken down into 4 easy to manage sections.

This tutorial covers :

  1. Creating a base empty migx package

  3. Our schema
  4. What is schema?
  5. Making our XPDO classes
  6. Creating our database table
  7. Making our migx configuration
