A .PHP script disappeared of a server that is needed to send a weekly bulletin type newsletter got deleted.............oops. So i got a phone call asking me to fix it. Now i couldn't PHP script my way out of a paper bag with a stanley knife, so, if anyone from CHCH wants to make some cash by going into town and writing a script that will tell an apache web server on a redhat machine to take a file called index.html and send it to all the email addresses listed on another file, there's cash in it for ya :thumbs:

No this isn't a spammer at work. Its a subscribed list.

PM me

The newsletter was supposed to go tonight, so this is fairly urgent and must be done tommorow ASAP

See if your hosting provider can restore it from a snapshot.

This would probably be a good start as well

Perhaps i should have mentioned that the apache/redhat server is a wee beasty sitting dumbly and patiantly in their office in central CHCH. The PHP script is GONE. :( No back up was made. :(A new one must be written.

Did i mention that this weekly bulk email promotes the website these people make their living from, and that there is :D good coin and kudos :Dfor the person who wanders in and replaces what was a few lines of script?

....or who finds anyway of regually sending 3000+ copies of an HTML mail?
