Diagnostic and fix xml feed


Currently in place is an xml feed that updates every 24 hours. After each update to the database, 2 csv files are generated. Once each csv file is generated an email notification is sent to notify its readiness for download.

There are 2 csv files generated through the xml feed/database:

1. Product update csv - that contains updated information of all products from our supplier. This csv is generated and emailed daily.

2. Specials update csv - that contains information of products that are on special. This csv is generated when available (not daily) and emailed.

Help needed:

1. Diagnostic

I have stopped receiving emails since 21 December 2015. I need someone with expertise to help determine the following:

- Check that the current xml feed is still working.

- Check that the cron job is still working.

- Tell me what is happening and why it has stopped working

- Provide a quote to fix it

2. Fix

- Resume the daily Product update csv and email

- Resume the Specials update csv and email

Skills: MySQL, PHP, XML, Yii
