**Can't get much easier!** I need a PHP script which logs into a remote site (as a web browser) and modifies one variable. Minor screen-scraping will be needed, but mostly this is a very straight-forward task using CURL and cookies.
This script will, in turn, be called by an SMS interface, but you will not have to do anything there. All script output must be tiny, e.g., "Wrong Password", "State Changed", etc.; no formatting.
You must be comfortable with legal, adult content, as you may (or may not) be exposed to this in this project.
This script shall take as inputs two fields from the URL: a (action) and p (password). i.e., the script will be called with ...?a=foo&p=bar
If the password is incorrect, terminate the script with "Wrong Password".
Log into the website with a stored username and password (which will be different than the above password to *this* script). (All URL's will of course be given to the winning bidder.) You may (or may not) need to navigate to the account status page, which contains a form displaying a field with the current status. Based on the action, modify the status field and submit the form. (If the action is unknown, terminate the script with "Unknown Action".) Determine the status of the change, based on the response page, and report this in abbreviated form, i.e., "Done", or just the error given, without formatting.

I’m pretty flexible and easy to work with. I tried
to make sure that this job is as completely specified
as humanly possible.
If you have **any** questions, *please*
ask them! I have found that
it is far better to risk a bit of embarrassment
than to spend
time working on an assumption which later proves
to be wrong.
Do not worry that a question may seem silly; just
*let me know*
and I will be very happy to answer you!
