Project Description

I require a PHP CLI script that will do a product web scrap on [url removed, login to view]

I am a reseller of their products but they do not have a way to share their products and tracks with their clients. I need a script that will update an existing MySQL database with their products (the script will be run by via cron at regular intervals so will need to add new products and make updates where required).

Please note when pricing up that as the supplier doesn't have a proper database themselves the data is in multiple formats - I suggest you check out a few of their CDs to see the format that the data is in before quoting for the work:

[url removed, login to view] <<< New entry with link to MP3 file for preview of track. Data points in their own TD tag

[url removed, login to view] <<< Old entry where all data is within a P tag separated by a BR

The structure of the database I need populating is as follows:

tblManufacturers - full list found in "Search by Artist" SELECT on most pages

id {AI BI}

wrdid {BI} - taken from URL where possible


id {AI BI}

wrdid {BI}

Title {VC}

RRP {D} - is price including VAT

DiscCount {I} - Number of CDs

Manufacturer {I} - FK to [url removed, login to view]


id {AI BI}

Album {BI} - FK to [url removed, login to view]

Disc {I}

Track {I}

Title {VC}

Artist {VC}


Length {T}

DStyle {BI} - FK [url removed, login to view]

PrevMP3 {VC} - Filename of MP3 preview file


id {BI AI}

Style {VC}

I am a PHP programmer but do not have time to put this together myself - all coding must be clean and well commented.
