With the following code, just copy and insert each request in a new line as url parameter.

	foreach($_REQUEST as $key => $value){
		$requestarray .= $key.'='.urlencode($value).'&';

	$requestarray = substr($requestarray, 0, -1)."\r\n";
	file_put_contents("myfile.txt", $requestarray, FILE_APPEND );


Now you can read that file and insert them into your mysql database.

	//include your dbconfig file here
	//http parameters will be receiving as follow
	$filename = "myfile.txt";
	$tablename = "my_test_table";
	$readfile = fopen($filename, "r");
		if (flock($readfile, LOCK_EX)){
			while (($line = fgets($readfile)) !== false){
				parse_str($line, $get_array);
				$sql = "INSERT INTO `".$tablename."` 
					(`external_id` ,`delivery_ts` ,`delivery_status` , `cause` , `grpname` , `mobile_no`, `delivery_date`) VALUES ";
				$ValuesArr = array();
				foreach((array($get_array)) as $row){
					if($row['externalId'] != ''){
						$process = true;
						$externalid_server = safepost($row['externalId']);
						$deliveredTS = safepost($row['deliveredTS']);
						$status_delivery = safepost($row['status']);
						$cause = safepost($row['cause']);
						$rphone = safepost($row['phoneNo']);
						$phoneNo = substr($rphone, -10);
						$grpName = safepost($row['grpName']);
						$ValuesArr[] = "(	".$conn->qstr($externalid_server).", 
											'".date("Y-m-d H:i:s")."' )";				
					} else {
						$process = false;
				$sql .= implode(',', $ValuesArr);
					//echo $sql."<br>";
					//$id = $conn->Insert_ID();
					//echo $id."<br>";
			ftruncate($readfile, 0);
			flock($readfile, LOCK_UN);
			file_put_contents($filename, $readfile);
	} else {
		echo " error opening the file.";


Hope this helps someone in the near future.
