CREATE EVENT myevent
    ON SCHEDULE 
    AT '2014-01-17 03:00:00'    
    EVERY 1 WEEK
    DO yourProcedure();

Open in new window


CREATE
    [DEFINER = { user | CURRENT_USER }]
    EVENT
    [IF NOT EXISTS]
    event_name
    ON SCHEDULE schedule
    [ON COMPLETION [NOT] PRESERVE]
    [ENABLE | DISABLE | DISABLE ON SLAVE]
    [COMMENT 'comment']
    DO event_body;

schedule:
    AT timestamp [+ INTERVAL interval] ...
  | EVERY interval
    [STARTS timestamp [+ INTERVAL interval] ...]
    [ENDS timestamp [+ INTERVAL interval] ...]

interval:
    quantity {YEAR | QUARTER | MONTH | DAY | HOUR | MINUTE |
              WEEK | SECOND | YEAR_MONTH | DAY_HOUR | DAY_MINUTE |
              DAY_SECOND | HOUR_MINUTE | HOUR_SECOND | MINUTE_SECOND}

Thanks for the advice, I am not very proficient on this and am having trouble understanding above code

The name of my SP is "PermitWeb" and I want it to run everyday at 18:00 hours.

Can you give me an extra hint on this

This is my latest attempt

DELIMITER $$
CREATE EVENT `ParkingEnforcement` 
ON SCHEDULE EVERY 1 Day Starts '2014-01-17 13:00:00'
BEGIN
Call PermitWeb;
END 

Open in new window


How can I check this to ensure it executed?

I would just schedule it for close to the current time and check you get the result you expect when you run the SP.

You can use SHOW EVENTS to list them:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/show-events.html
SHOW EVENTS [{FROM | IN} schema_name]
    [LIKE 'pattern' | WHERE expr]

Open in new window


There's also a log:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/events-status-info.html
Beginning with MySQL 5.1.12, event scheduler status information can be obtained by running mysqladmin debug (see Section 4.5.2, “mysqladmin — Client for Administering a MySQL Server”); after running this command, the server's error log contains output relating to the Event Scheduler

Open in new window

Events status:
LLA = Last Locked At  LUA = Last Unlocked At
WOC = Waiting On Condition  DL = Data Locked

Event scheduler status:
State      : INITIALIZED
Thread id  : 0
LLA        : init_scheduler:313
LUA        : init_scheduler:318
WOC        : NO
Workers    : 0
Executed   : 0
Data locked: NO

Event queue status:
Element count   : 1
Data locked     : NO
Attempting lock : NO
LLA             : init_queue:148
LUA             : init_queue:168
WOC             : NO
Next activation : 0000-00-00 00:00:00

I learned something new (events in mysql) :)

I would have done it like this:
you can build up such a command line:
mysql --user=your_username --execute="call stored_procedure_name()" db_name

Open in new window

, eventually into a batch/script file....
and then schedule that in your normal OS scheduling application
