Ok, I am having a lot of problems with 1 of the projects on GAF. Someone made a script for but I am having problems completing the database with it. The script crawls a website and puts records in a MySQL database. The whole DB should be around 700,000-800,000 records. Script is in PHP. Basically I am looking for someone with a fast server and php knowledge. I want you to run the script for me and get me the DB in *4-5* days maximum. I will not wait more than that, I've already waited enough trying to run it myself. So if you can run multiple instances of this script that's even better.
Script is in PHP and uses CURL - you MUST have CURL installed on your server to be able to run it on your server. You are free to modify it for speed if you see it's possible. This is an easy project...all you have to do is set up the script on your server, set up the mysql basic table structure, and let the script run. Script will run the fastest if you set it up as a server background process, however it can also be run through browser.
Please only bid if you can get me the database in 4-5 days, otherwise you will not be paid. I am paying $30 for this - I already have the script so nothing for you to program, need to set it up (will take 10 minutes maximum), break down the work in parts, and run as many instances as you can to get me the database quickly.
P.S. I already have around 400,000 records completed and could get you that partially completed DB too (if so, then it should take you 2-3 days to complete this project after you get half of the database)
If you have many computers or access to many computers then you could just run multiple instances of the script directly from my server which will be an even easier job. I have about 10 letters to run(script runs website alphabetically).
When you bid please let me know what you plan to do - whether you have access to many computers and can run many instances from my server, or whether you will run from your own fast linux server.
