    advice on importing a csv file into a mysql table

    Hi

    Would appreciate some advice.

    I have a client who is a car dealer and receives a zip file with jpegs and a csv file of his used cars .

    What is the easiest way to display them on his website.

    I think using phpMyadmin would be too difficult for them.

    Is there a script that could run at a click of a button or a cron job that would be capable of unpacking the files and updating a mysql table. (OK perhaps the unzipping could be done manually!)

    I believe this would be possible with PHP (including the unpacking) but there won't be anything off-the-shelf ready to do this. There may be something close that could be modified. Maybe check out www.hotscripts.com ?
