We recently purchased your plugin for a client’s website, but I am running into a few issues.
Here’s how the client has their site set up: they use two pieces of software – ExpertAgent and RentPro – to provide listings to their properties. RentPro pushes information to our server, while ExpertAgent stores the data on their own servers.
The RentPro information gets pushed to a Rightmove directory in the root of our client’s site. I have taken a look at the PHP for your plugin and it seems like I would be able to get around the issue by tinkering with including and beyond line 348 and changing it from wp_upload_dir(); to the root directory. Would this be likely to cause other issues within the plugin?
The other issue is that the ExpertAgent data is stored on an external server, which I can’t seem to find a way to configure in your plugin. Is this something that can be done or will I need to delve further into other solutions?
I appreciate your time.

From memory wp_upload_dir() is only called once, so it probably would work, although of course you would have to be careful not to over write with new releases.
I probably could put in a WP-CONFIG parameter to override the directories.
But I do have some concern, ” The RentPro information gets pushed to a Rightmove directory in the root of our client’s site.” if you use this here for anything else, as my plugin will move the file into ‘processed’. I also would need to know if the root of the website is actually visible (i.e. public_html) because processed directory needs to be visible to the web to allow All Import to work.
The plugin can’t work across external servers, so the files will need to be moved.
It sounds like you need a little bit of sys admin support. If you have shell access to your server(s) and assuming Linux, as I believe rsync could be used pretty easily ( see http://linux.die.net/man/1/rsync ) to get teh files to the right place from either the local or remote machine.
Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks for the detailed response, I appreciate it a lot! I will take a look at some of these solutions this week, but at least it’s promising.
