I run an SEO company in the UK, and one of my clients has a website which was built by a third party web design company. This web design company won't provide ftp access which I need to carry out my SEO work.
So, I decided to move the website to my own host and asked the web design company to upload the website to my own ftps and copy the MYSQL database over to my server.
The website is now on my test server, but the CMS doesn't work as the web designers won't allow external access. Basically, they are trying to cause me as many problems as they can. So there is now no working CMS.
My client's website is mainly static, but there are 2 sections which my customer used to be able to update online using the CMS, when it worked on the old server. These pages are a Portfolio page, and a News section.
I need a programmer who can build a new Back End to connect to this website and the existing data held in the database.
The website is still live on the old server with a working admin section, which I will give you access too, but I have no ftp or database access logins.
I also have the website live on my test server, with no admin section.
I can provide ftp access to the test server and also MYSQL logins, but I can't give any details of the CMS, because there isn't one.
I'm sure you have loads of questions, so please PMB me and I will show you the website.
Also, something else has happened when the web designers copied the files over to my server. All the links in the navigation now have %20 spacing in them eg. [url removed, login to view]%20services/[url removed, login to view] so it looks like this:
[url removed, login to view] services/[url removed, login to view]
I think they have coded this in on purpose just to cause me problems.
Basically all these problems I am having are simply because the web design company won't give ftp access and they are trying to cause me lots of problems, for example not letting the CMS work because they are now annoyed that my client isn't paying them for hosting anymore.
