We have two custom product bots that that crawl etech4sale and globalcomputer for categories and products and update our modified oscommerce stores. (our stores share a mysql database)
We had these bots programmed my a Indian programmer with about 2-3 years of experience. We have some other bots that work fine but with these two bots we have ran into the following issues.
1. Not grabbing all categories
2. Not grabbing all products
3. Not grabbing all pictures
4. Not grabbing all description
5. Corrupting other products in our database
6. Adding the products but the prices are wrong
These bots are php scripts that are run manually or by a cron job in our linux environment.
We are looking for a php programmer with 5 or more years of experience since this is an advanced task. We are open to ideas or suggestions to accomplish the goal of adding the categories and updating the products every few days.
I have attached the files for review. The task is to get the bots to properly update the categories and products for at least 1 week without any issues.
