I need a quick scrapper written in PHP... running on linux server.
It will visit 1 website (a forum) every 1 hour (by cron job),
and then will get the number of visitors viewing the sub-forums.
so, it will parse 1 page... and get the value of viewers count, for that hour.
I need very simple reports from the collected data...
Just need answers to the following questions:
- Which hours of the day has the biggest/lowest number of viewers?
- Which days of the week has the biggest/lowest number of viewers?
- Which days of the month has the biggest/lowest number of viewers?
- compare the # of viewers for each sub-section (per hour, for the day)
if you can put the data on a chart... that would be great...
something like open chart: [url removed, login to view]
(or any other chart, if you are familiar with something else)
This project is easy and quick... so it's suitable for someone who wants
to build his [url removed, login to view] profile and get quick feedbacks etc...
Thanks for looking,
P.S. You can use ANY database format you like... txt database, or MySQL .. anything is fine :-)
