Write three PHP scripts to screen scrape three websites of classified ads using our own PHP library. Once it is written, the script will be run periodically (ie, every hour) and will read all the new ads in each site.
You will be given a list of three websites to screen-scrape.
Our PHP library basically uses regular expressions to scrape the pages and then insert the new ads in a database. You will be given extensive documentation about the library.
- Proven knowledge of Regular Expressions is a must
- Need to have access to a LAMP server (ie, XAMPP, MAMPP) to run and test the script
