Use Curl To Grab Data And Update A Database?

May 20, 2010

I have a button that will use curl to grab data and update a database. It's pretty server intensive, so I'm wondering how I could utilize the timestamp function to limit the use of this button to once ever 1-2 hours.

Grab Data From Database For Chatbox?

I'm currently trying to grab data from my database for my chatbox, which when displayed, displays in an ascending order, when I call it to descend, it shows the messages ONCE in descending order, then just repeats but in random order..

Code: [Select]$sql = "SELECT * FROM `message` WHERE `chat_id` = 1 AND `message_id` > $last ORDER BY `message_id` DESC";
message_id | name


It is ordering it correctly, just repeats, I'm using Ajax, could that be the problem, or is it within the PHP code?

Grab A Small Column Of Data From A Database And Return It

I'm trying to just grab a small column of data from a Database and return it. This is a function called getAccessLevel(), it returns the Access level which is an integer. There is a table called users in the DB and the column access holds either 0, 1, or 2 to determine what users access level is. I'm trying to get the access level of a user that has the matching ID. This is what I have thus far (**** to cover certain privacy things):

$link = connectDatabase();
$mydb = mysql_select_db($dbname)or die("Can't select");
$userID = getID();
$query = "SELECT * FROM $tbl_name WHERE 'id'='$userID'";
$result = mysql_query($query);
$row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result);

My function methods have worked in other pages, but I just haven't done that query or row fetch to isolate a single row before...I don't understand why this doesn't work.

Using Curl To Update Mysql When Curl Spits Out Json?

Ok a rather strange question here (or maybe not)

I am trying to pull tweets out of twitter using curl here is the command

curl url.

Every where there is an x that is a place for variables like twitter username and password and also the hashtag to look for.

And this is using the twitter restful api which alerts your script everytime a change was made.

In a console this curl command works perfectly but now i just need to take the output and save it to my mysql tables.

Update Data In A Database?

Consider the following code in a datamapper, to save data into a database:

* Save data into the database
* @param Site_Model_User $model

What i do is that i save my object everytime. When doing an insert this is no problem. Because I send a complete filled update. But lets say I want to update my password. And i do a update. It doesn't let me do the update because it says that certain values can not be 0.For example: Mysqli statement execute error : Column 'username' cannot be null"What is the best soultion for this?Should I first load the whole object again from the database, then change the fields and then do the update?

Use CURL To Grab A Html Table?

I'm trying to use cURL to grab an external web page to put into my own website, it's basically a "ladder" of a sports team, I contacted them, but they do not have a RSS feed of the ladder, so I'm trying to obtain the ladder by other means, is it possible to grab everything between < table > and < / table > using cURL? I can grab the page that I want using the following code, but I don't need anything else except for the HTML table.

$ch = curl_init ("");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
echo $page = curl_exec($ch);

If someone could help me out, that'd be great.

CURL Redirect Not Grab Content?

I have the following script which upon execution submits POST data to a [URL]...But I want the script to kind of redirect/forward to that [URL].. so the url bar needs to change to that URL. At the moment it grabs the content of the [URL]and writes it out. I've read so many site but none of them has the solution.

$curl_session = curl_init();
curl_setopt ($curl_session, CURLOPT_POST, true);
//curl_setopt ($curl_session, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]);
curl_setopt ($curl_session, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, 'param_id=my_code');
curl_setopt ($curl_session, CURLOPT_URL, '');
curl_setopt ($curl_session, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, true);
$output = curl_exec ($curl_session);
curl_close ($curl_session);

Using Fopen(), Curl Or 'Other' To Grab Remote Contents

I have been building a search engine here - not because I have plans of
dethrowning Google but as a simple app upon which to develop a function
set that I can use for other things.

So I coded my little search engine, uploaded it and it didn't work with
my host (

Warning: fopen(): URL file-access is disabled in the server

There is no way around this. Maybe I am a fool but when I am creating
apps I like to have as little configuration requirements as possible --
in my mind it means more people can use my stuff. In this app I use
fopen to go off and grab the page contents from which I extract the
meta tags, strip away all the HTML tags, headers, and javascript and
store what I need to.

I did the above without using fragile weak get_meta_tags and have my
own version of get_headers - because its a PHP5 function only, and
because I dont like the idea of a page making multiple connections to a

Essentially my functions will work if I can grab the entire page
contents and throw them into a variable which I in turn pass.

Is there a way of doing this without using fopen and curl??

I'm going to have to write a wrapper for my functions as it is so this
works seemlessly regardless of the method used - I will include Curl in
this however as mentioned earlier I prefer not to have to use extra

Is it common for fopen to be disabled for remote content? Or do I just
have an over zealous admin staff.

I was planning on using these function with XML files down the road...
this is the core of everything I am doing.

Bulk Import/update Of Data Into Database?

I have a large XML document (~10 mb) that contains data. I need to parse this XML and go through my database to update it. There are 3 cases:

New data is present in the XML since last time - insert it into the DB An item has changed - update it in the DB An item has been removed from the XML since last time - mark it as disabled in the DB

If data for an item hasn't changed since the last time I checked the XML, take no action. Each item in the XML has its own ID so I can retrieve it from the database easily.

It's really slow to iterate through the items like this though, but I need the relational aspects of a database (the XML represent items that users can buy, so I can't generate new IDs for the items and just bulk load them).

What would be the best way of implementing this since looping through the XML and looking up each item individually is really slow.

This is done using PHP into a MySQL database.


The reason the script is so slow is because I can't use any kind of bulk operations like LOAD DATA INFILE because for each entry in the XML I need to check whether the object already exists.

So I'm really wondering if anyone can suggest another approach that will allow me to bulk load data while maintaining referential integrity with existing data.

Initiate Connection To FTP Page With Curl And Grab Contents?

I'm needing to write a script to show the contents of a users FTP folder inside of their user panel. The details are pretty straight forward.

1. I am on a shared hosting account. The users purchase the package, then based on their transaction information I create their FTP account with Curl by logging into my cpanel securely with the correct headers. It also adds them to the DB.

When they log into their User Panel to view their files, i need it to show a list of the FTP folder. I could just use a database, but it wouldn't update if they used a third-party FTP client instead of the form in their panel. I'm sure most of them will be using a client. How would I go about doing this ? When they log in with their id and password would I just initiate a connection to the FTP page with Curl and grab the contents in some fashion ? Would their have to be a session started?
