I have 3700 products online. Approx 7 months ago I paid a freelancer to create a "program" to redirect traffic from my old site to the new one, so that no search engine links would be broken, etc.
He made the program and it worked great, however I had server issues and was not able to make the transition to the new site within a reasonable amount of time, I had to rent a completely new server so I could launch the new site.
By the time I had this done, the freelance employee I had hired would not return my messages anymore.
I want to use the original program, but I have no idea how to use it or how to enable it and update it to redirect to my new site. The old site will be migrated to the new server, but left offline and the database will be there to bounce the traffic to the new store.
I have attached the program he wrote for you to review.

Original Post, from 7 months ago:
I have 3000 products online on an online store.
I need approx 3000 301 redirects pointing to my new store that is going live.
There are 271 categories.
I need a complete 301 redirect performed that will direct customers from the old store product link to the new online store product.
I would like an estimate money wise, and estimated time that the project will take you. Thanks!
