Fix Bugs (mass Mailing Script)
I need a PHP and SQL expert with >10 years of experience. You must have much experience with scripts that relate to mailing 10,000’s of emails per day from 1 virtual server per day.
The script seems to me almost complete – maybe complete with bugs. I need you to make this script work perfectly.
The script is a press release distribution site. Each day, customers post press releases and choose interest categories and target locations. The script is suppose to send daily emails to members. The content of each email depends on the interest category and location of the member.
The website is press **** release **** group **** dot **** com. ((((remove the ****))))).
The original project description is:
Some of the description has changed, and i will provide more detail for you after I pick you.
The main problem with the script has to do with sending mass mails.
My script is suppose to send 20,000 – 150,000 emails per day to my opt in members.
The current script has had problems with sending the emails. I am not sure that it has ever been able to do it perfectly.
Assume that I have no technical background. I know very very little about the code and this script.
The script is supposed to be totally automated, with no needed intervention from me.
You may need to write a totally new script to make the mass mailing work.
You will need to do anything and everything that is necessary to make this script work according to my description (uploading, debugging, server modificitions, etc…)
I am not exactly certain what the bug is. What I do know is my script would show me a list of emails that were sent ….BUT, the emails were not really sent (or at least not received by the recipient.)
Sometimes the cron job would not start, or not start on time. It is supposed to send emails at 09:00 EST (New York time) each day.
Also, recently I noticed a message on my server log: “numtcpsock – The number of TCP sockets (PF_INET family, SOCK_STREAM type). This parameter limits the number of TCP connections and, thus, the number of clients the server application can handle in parallel.”
I will pay by Scriptlance escrow once you have totally completed the job AND after the script is working perfectly and totally automated for 3 days with no problems.
If you do not complete the project within your bidded time frame, or if job is not complete, I reserve the right to null contract and receive escrow funds back.
I can provide current code to you of certain pages by PMB if desired.
