Project Description


I have a MySQL database with 30,000 records. Each record relates to a page of various books.

I have used a PHP script to generate a separate XML document, that has a link to the .jpg thumbnail of each image.

The problem is that some of the .jpgs are missing - but I do not know which ones. I need a php script that can search for the files on a web server and tell me if they exist are not.

I can send you:

The MySql Database and the file that generates the XML. From this you should be able see how the url of the thumbnail is generated.

I will need a script that I can run on the database (and future, similar databases), that will tell me which thumbnails do not exist on the remote server. I will ask you to comment on the script so that I know what section does what.
