Linux Perl LWP retrieve large files

running centOS, Apache, Perl, PHP, Mysql, typical hosting setup.

I am a programmer myself, just looking to save time. I have written similar code in past. I know how long something like this should take to code with experience so please estimate time and price accordingly or I will ignore.

I have unique urls stored in a database. I want to retrieve a .zip file based on URL. File could be 5MB or as large as 300MB.

I have php5 and recent perl with most useful modules loaded. I have written this with lwp in the past.

I would like to retrieve file using a variable. The variable will be the mysql data id of the row containing the url. i.e.

[url removed, login to view]

The script will need to have the DB connection hardcoded so it can connect to the DB and grab the URL.

The script should work both when executed in browser client or by cron however I am ok with a seperate cron script.

I'd like to see progress (ok with page reload - doesn't need to be fancy) but also ok with something running in background once executed if an email notification is sent when finished.

No flash uploaders!

This is a backend app so ok requiring ie8 or newer, jquery, etc...
