Navigate to the repository folder:

$ cd gantt-php-mysql-live-edit

$  mysql -u USER_NAME -p < dump.sql

Drop index.html, data.php, live_edit.php and js and css folders to a folder where you serve your .php files and your server (e.g. Apache or Nginx) could get them. Open browser at an appropriate URL.

        bootstrap-datetimepicker.min.js   # bootstrap date picker js.
        index.js                          # general functionality.
    data.php                              # PHP file which loads data from MySQL
    dump.sql                              # MySQL database dump
    index.html                            # HTML page that uses ajax for data manipulations.
    live_edit.php                         # PHP file which performs data operations
