We have commissioned developers to build an extensive web application using PHP4. For file management, we want to incorporate Simple Storage Service (S3) from Amazon Web Services (AWS) instead of managing files at a local web server. At its website, AWS publishes sample code in various formats, including in PHP5; however, they offer no sample code for PHP4. Some users of S3, who have posted to the AWS forums, have developed and published PHP4 code, but it's not sufficient for our purposes. Here's what we need: - Code that can be incorporated into our existing PHP4 web application. - Code that allows users of our application to upload files to S3. Typical files are in Word, Powerpoint, Excel, PDF, JPG, PNG, and video formats. While we should allow users to upload large files (up to 1GB), this is the exception and not the rule. - Code that allows other users of our application to access previously uploaded files via a hyperlink.. - Code that allows our web application to delete specific files from S3. - Code that displays a progress bar on the screen to inform users of progress in uploading/accessing a file. - When a file is uploaded to S3, our existing web application must be informed of the size of that file. - The program should be designed to ensure resource needs at our local web server are minimized. - Clear documentation to support the code so our developers can integrate the new code into the existing application. Since AWS-S3 requires the use of private keys and password information, please explain where this should be added to your program. In order to develop and test the new code, you'll need to open a new AWS-S3 account and pay their rates for bandwidth and storage. This cost must be included in your total price.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) Clear and comprehensive documentation to explain how the program works such that other developers can incorporate it into an existing web application.
Our existing PHP4-based web application runs on both Windows and UNIX. The developers use PHP4 and the Linux centOS operating system.
