I need someone who codes a linux bash script, specially for my needs.

Basically, the script has to

-be editable, so config section should be there

-check specified folders for new folders (script runnning in crontab) in these folders

-if there are new folders, check if newfoldername is not excluded by config and if there is no symlink (incomplete)-newfoldername

-if everything ok then zip the folder

-then connect to a ftp server, change to a certain dir and upload the zip file

-then connect to a mysql database and make an INSERT query

-if everything ok with ftp upload and mysql query, delete the created zip file

Shouldn't be too much work for someone who is familiar with linux and bash scripting.

Thank you very much.
