I need a PHP wizard to make some improvements to an existing tool.
Here's the brief:
This is the brief for the original tool: [url removed, login to view]
And here is the completed codebase: [url removed, login to view]
The improvements I would like to make:
-- Further debugging of easy fixes for URL attempt errors. The current log file (URL can be later over private message), shows frequent errors.
-- We currently use an open proxy service ([url removed, login to view]). We need to first test each IP that the open proxy provides to make sure that it is based in the USA (making use of a free IP-geo API, perhaps) and also offers complete anonymity. It is important that the receiving client is not able to either see the original IP or know that we're using a proxy.
-- There are two URLs that never resolve correctly. Will reveal them over private message. Need to debug this.
Please include the password "pasta" in your bid. Proposals without the password will be ignored. Bids failing to demonstrate understanding of the tool will also be ignored.
This should be a quick, simple and fun task for someone who knows what they're doing. It's a fixed price project, but there could be opportunities to work together in the future.
You will be more likely to be hired if you can demonstrate your skills be showing that you understand the problem and have already considered a solution.
You will see that I have a long standing reputation on [url removed, login to view] and that freelancers have had a successful working relationship with me.
To set expectations; these are simple tweaks to an existing working tool. I do not expect the additional cost to go over $40. Additional milestones can be offered if the scope expands.
Willing to expand expected cost from $40 to $60.
