I need someone to write a small PHP script that will convert a remote XML feed of properties into a Mosets HotProperty Database for Joomla. - must work under PHP version 4, as the host only provides this version - must be very fast in processing of the remote xml file and generation of SQL to run - must be fast in processing of mysql queries - script should clean out the hotproperty tables before running in new information - ease of design for you - XML feed is [url removed, login to view] - three random listings from the XML file will be created as featured listings in HotProperty and appropriate SQL created and executed. - the solution also needs to be able to use externally hosted images within hotproperty, so whatever mods are required on the DB and HP component to suit. I already have a semi-working mockup which uses a simple class from php classes, called XML2DB and uses simpleXML which cannot be used on our host. See attached file for sample XML file with the original XML2DB class. As above the XML file has the pictures as being on hosted on another server. These will need to be served out from there instead of from the local server. This script and associated fixes will need to accomodate this in the db import and serving them out correcly and at the right sizes within modules in Joomla.
