We believe that we need to make a browser script, either using curl or lynx, that will login to Joomla and execute a particular function. We have been told that Joomla will deny any attempts by a function outside of the Joomla framework to do this. It might be possible to make jCron do this but it's not obvious how that would work.
Additionally, the person hired for this MUST have experience with installing packages on a linux machine. There appears to be a broken install of one of the hwdvideoshare requirements, maybe flvtool or something, and for some reason this is making a curl call in our script hang. Please only apply for this job if you are comfortable sorting through these kinds of issues.
