I need some functionality that will be added to a larger project.
1. I need a very simple Visual Basic app that is installed on a client PC (Windows XP). This app should have one button that uploads all .jpg files in a pre-configured directory on the client system to a pre-configured "staging" directory on the Linux webserver. (The path and name of the directories are constants and are stored in the database as part of the configuration data.)
2. Once the files are on the server, another button should become visible that when clicked opens the client's default Internet browser (IE) or (Firefox) with a url loaded to call PHP script on the server that will process the uploaded files and close the VB app.
3. The the PHP script processes the files to:
a.) insert data about the files into the database
b.) re-size them to fit maximum height, width and size limits specified in the database then move them from the "staging directory" to an "images" directory on the server after processing
Existing code is available for some of the PHP processing. Create database SQL script, php database connection script and test data will all be provided.
Communtication is a must!!! I'll select a freelancer based on communications prior to awarding the project. Please ask if you have questions. Phone me at U.S. XXXXXXXXXXXX to save time. Or provide your Yahoo id and time for a Yahoo chat.
