Create a crawler for rental housing information from craigslist. I want data for the San Francisco Bay Area: [ttp://[url removed, login to view]]. Data should be for all Bay Area Cities in this section of craigslist. The data must be downloadable into an Excel spreadsheet including the following columns:
Address/City/State/ # of Bedrooms/Rent/Date Posted/Title
Build a PHP 5.0 application to crawl [[url removed, login to view]]and place the results data in MYSQL database. The crawler will run on a CHRON job each night at 11:40 p.m. The application should be built on your own server in a LAMP stack environment (Linux, Apache, MYSQL, and PHP). Once the project is complete, please migrate the project to my server as the finished product.
