This script will first scan the var/import directory for all CSV files starting “import-” using the
glob() function in PHP. It will return an array of any files which match the query in the directory including the file path from root.
$file_parts will be used later when we need just the file name.
$cmd is the executable shell command we will be using to load Magmi, set the profile, mode and chosen file.
shell_exec() function runs the command and will return any output to the
$output variable, this can be expanded to check for a successful import. The script below will carry on regardless of import status.
Once the import is complete we take the CSV and copy it into an archive folder, just in case we want to reuse it. The original file is then deleted from the var/import folder using
This script can then either be run manually, or set-up as a scheduled task using Cron.
// Find all CSV files in import directory $files = glob('/home/admin/public_html/var/import/import*.csv'); // For each of the files found foreach ($files as $file): // Explode for teh the file name in 6th position of the array $file_parts = explode("/",$file); // Set-up the command $cmd = 'php /home/admin/public_html/magmi/cli/magmi.cli.php -profile=default -mode=create -CSV:filename="'.$file.'"'; // Execute the comamnd $output = shell_exec($cmd); // Copy the executed script into an archive folder if ( copy($file,'/home/admin/public_html/var/import/archive/'.$file_parts) ): // Delete the original unlink($file); endif; endforeach;
