Project Description

Script needed for automate import from excel/ .xls file to creloaded online store.
1. The source file .xls is stored on a ftp server, and will be updated everyday.
2. I need you write a script to import certain column from .xls file to creloaded online store.
3. we have to test the script until it's working perfectly.
4. some clue: use easy populate?

some tips from google search, but it's for zen cart, which has been proof working ok:

You can save an excel spreadsheet in CSV format and use, the Easy Populate CSV add on, available here:
[url removed, login to view]

Ftp the file to /tempEP (the default import directory).
Let's say the file is called [url removed, login to view]

You might be able to automate the above with a batch script.

Then create a script to be called by cron every five minutes say.
The script must first authenticate itself.
[url removed, login to view]

The script then sets the filename variable to import and runs the easypopulate code.

To authenticate we need to override init_admin_auth.php.
So copy
admin/includes/init_includes/[url removed, login to view]
admin/includes/init_includes/overrides/[url removed, login to view]
and add
// to allow cron jobs set CRON_ADMIN_USER_ID
if (!isset($_SESSION['admin_id']) && defined('CRON_ADMIN_USER_ID') && CRON_ADMIN_USER_ID != '') {
to just after

if (!defined('IS_ADMIN_FLAG')) {
die('Illegal Access');

Then we write the script for cron.
Create a file /admin/[url removed, login to view]:

Then set up the cron job to call the script eg:
/usr/bin/lynx -accept_all_cookies -dump http://localhost/PathTo/admin/[url removed, login to view]
