So sorry David
Server ran a cron job to fetch and import. But I had forgotten to set the minute and it was left as an * So the script ran every minute! Consequiently the script failed.
I manually clicked run on the automation tool and that worked. Feeds all correct on the server.
However, it refuses to import. On clicking slow import I get page counting products importing, but none are actually imported.
I ran the purge script you gave for another time But it still won't import after that
$sql = "DELETE FROM `".$config_databaseTablePrefix."products`";
