Well our request is very, very simple.
There is a freeware web script written in ASP which is currently running only under Access and MSSQL (the last release it's included in the bid attached file, folder "webdesk_last_release").
We would like to have this nice app also running under MySQL and we think that for an expert coder should be a very easy and quick task.
Also remember that this application will be developed in the future so you have to provide all the necessary information required to keep it always MySQL compatible the application.
Few more things, please reply point to point (download and check the app. first):
1- The script will be obviously subject to future updates and
implementations (for instance possibility to receive requests
also by email and not only from web form; new registration form for staff members; etc.);
We require to you also written clear information about how to keep the script (both asp and db structure) 100% MySQL compatible.
Generally you have to consider that both asp and db tables will be subjected to future modifications; so is very important for us to have clear 'guidelines' to keep the application MySQL compatible otherwise every time we'll have a porting to do!
2- Special section in ADMIN control panel has to be created, where admin can choose which database to use. The choise
about which database to adopt it has to be included in the [url removed, login to view] file (which is the one the user run the first time to set up the helpdesk) but it means also that as said above the admin need a radio button option to switch from a database to an other.
3- The script that create the MySQL db tables is required
4- We obviously need also a conversion tool from existent ACCESS 2000 /MSSQL db to MySQL (existent users using Access/MSSQL db; we have to migrate data actually present in ACCESS/MSSQL db into the MySQL).
5- Connection to db has to be possible both using ODBC and without ODBC.
In the updated bid attach file you'll also find a folder called "customized_app"; this is an app based on this same script, but a little bit customized (some query are different, but 95% is exactely the same). We need you to make it run on MySQL.
**So finally what we require to you:
**1- Make the script included in our bid file, under the folder "webdesk_last_release", 100% compatible with MySQL; you have to create a new radio button in the [url removed, login to view] scipt (in addition to Access and MSSQL) that allow to install the script on MySQL. Also you have to create an easy tool to convert existing application running on Access/MSSQL to MySQL.
2- Convert to MySQL also the customized application included under the "customized_app" folder (that you find in the bid file). In this case we are already runnng it under Access and we want to migrate it to MySQl. We expect from you that you send it back to us ready to run under MySQL; consider that, oce you'll have it done, we'll have to insert in MySQL all our data .. so you have to provide to us a tool or very clear indications to insert them into MySQL.
If you have doubts ask.
Please don't provide standard answer but very clear info about price and your personal features.
