I'm looking to get this done ASAP, as I am under a deadline. If you've got the skills to do this, please bid now, instead of later. I need two things in this project: 1. A PHP file that downloads a TAB delimited TXT file down from a remote server onto my server, and parses the data into an existing MySQL database. 2. A cron job that calls the PHP file. I can do both of these things on my own, and the cron job isn't really that important (it takes like 15 seconds to setup.) I'm mainly concerned with the PHP file having the following specific abilities: A. It needs to be able to download a remote file B. It needs to save that file to the local disk C. It needs to delete all the records from the table D. It needs to parse the file from TAB delimited format into a MySQL statement and INSERT the records into the now empty MySQL table. Site details and all sensitive information will be given to the winning coder.
