Attached is a slide deck illustrating the business challenge for automating a search to find website database fields that were once blank but now are filled. An online database includes the name of individuals to which post mail is sent for marketing purposes. These are Personal Representatives (PR) of Estates and Wills. When a website record is filed, sometimes the individual (personal representative) is not listed on the record. Subsequently, when the PR is added to the record, I want to capture that information, so that a letter may be sent.
Responses should indicate understanding of the website and how it maintains records. Then, responses will describe how automation can periodically check the database to see if the PR record has been filled.
It has occurred to me that I may be able to incorporate into the automated tool a feature that I did not think would be a part of it. I already have a web scraper tool that scrapes this database and parses the PR's address into CSV for mailing purposes. What I didn't consider, but now am, is to have a tool scrape the database daily for filings from that day, parse the PR address (if there is one) and make the PR address available in CSV. For the records where the PR is missing, a separate automated run will check those daily for updates to those fields and when there are updates, parse the address and make it available in CSV. It seems that this project's solution would include a scraping anyway, so I might as well put the functions into one tool.
For those bidders with mySQL as the technology to be a part of the solution, how would that work? I have a hosting account with godaddy with mySQL. Would that be an option to use this available asset? Thanks.

Hello, I can make this crawler for you with separate PR addon. However you'll need VPS or dedicated server for this script to work, that said it won't be able to run on godaddy's shared hosting.
