#filedownloader.php A command line script, that will download a list of URLs (given in a file), using http proxies (given in another file). The goal is to download many URLs using different proxies in parallel, in order to avoid automated blocking and detection from the targeted hosts.
If you are on a Posix system like MacOS or Linux, you can invoke the script directly, without prefixing it with the php interpreter.
php filedownloader.php --proxiesfile=proxies.txt --urlsfile=urls.txt --verbose=100 --skipalreadyexistingfiles php filedownloader.php --proxiesfile=proxies.txt --urlsfile=urls.txt -v php filedownloader.php --proxiesfile=proxies.txt --urlsfile=urls.txt -v --referrer=http://www.dir.bg/
download maximum 20 urls at once
php filedownloader.php --proxiesfile=proxies.txt --urlsfile=urls.txt --chunksize=20
use shorter options, specifying a different list of proxies (real anonymizers):
php filedownloader.php -p=notraceproxies.txt -u=urls.txt
#ParallelProxyCrawler A PHP class to download many urls in parallel using different http proxies.
See the provided test_real_with_public_proxies_and_urls.php and the filedownloader.php files for example invokations.
After the class has downloaded an URL, an overideable callback function named 'process_result' or an overrideable callback 'on_failed_url' will be invoked. You can easily override them to do anything you want, like: store the content in a file, put it in a DB, parse it and extract some info ...
Just ensure that you return false from 'process_result' when you want the URL to be retried again, using a different proxy (perhapse because the proxy that was used, returned an ad, instead of the real content, or an network error occured, and so on ...)
See the end of the paralleldownloader.php for examples of subclassing and overiding the callback functions.
The folder slowproxy contains a simple http://nodejs.org/ based http proxy with configurable latency (minimum latency time and a variable random jitter time).
Example invokation of the slowproxy:
node slowproxy/slowproxy.js 3128 2200 1000
The above line will start a new http proxy listening on port 3128, with a baseline latency of 2200ms and a jitter of maximum 1000ms ( so the actual latency added for each response from the proxy will vary between 2200ms and 2200ms + 1000ms = 3200ms ).
