The PHP script should pull a list of active auctions from the main page of the site and either store them (or generate SQL to store them) in a database.
For each auction, the details (location, close time, description, etc) should be stored.
For each item, the details (description, bid amounts, and first two pictures) should be stored.
Once an auction/item details have been stored, a subsequent run of the script should update those details. This can be done by either querying a 'select' statement and doing an appropriate 'insert' or 'update' statement, or by using an 'on duplicate key update' clause with every insert statement.
The [login to view URL] auction site is fairly simple/flat, and only 3 page types will need to be handled: the main auction listing (to get list of active auction), the auction summary page for each auction (description, location, terms, etc), and the item page for each item in an auction (contains description, bid, and photos).
If interested in this project, we will provide a schema (.sql file) for you to create a small database on your system for working with/testing/developing this script.
Additional details: we plan to run this once per week and run some of our own analysis functions on the description and prices and generate email alerts for items in which we are interested (no need to handle this part in your script, - we will do that on our end; just giving some background on how this will be used)
