My last programmer left me hanging a little bit. I need some changes/improvements for this script he built fast!
What this script does:
-FTPs database tables and imports data into database (this works already)
-FTPs images archives and extracts them to a folder (this needs work)
This is how the carmls feed works:
Database tables are replaced on the site every day so our script drops the tables every day and imports new data
Incremental images are added every day for the new listings, at the end of the week these are rolled over into the "old" archives
Issues to consider:
Some of the picture archives are so large I'm afraid they may need to be imported and extracted manually. The good news is that once the big archives are extracted all you have to worry about from then on are the incremental updates.
The script needs to tell me which picture archives were successfully or unsuccessfully added that day
I would like to store this information in a flat file or database so that I can look at a file and make sure that every single picture archive has been extracted.
NEED EXCELLENT communication through instant messenger and email after winner is awarded project.
I Will provide:
login passwords, for FTP sites
-The current script (note I blocked out passwords with **** for viewing purposes)
-database I'm using
-Sample directory listing on website where we get the database/image feed
Notes on pay:
I don't want to pay more than $30 for this small job
I'm re-uploading the mysql import cgi as a text file so you can look at it. Sorry.
One last try....
