Project Description:
I am using joomla and virtuemart.

Your job is to build the an import php page that runs the CSV file and keeps the category URLs and removes/adds new products or categories.

the cron job will run once a day.

Products that have been removed from the new CSV file will need to be removed from the virtuemart product listings also.
