    Question Web Directory Monitor?

    I'm not sure if this was the right area to post this in but

    I'm looking for some kind of script/program that can moniter specified directories on my website and email me notification if say a file was uploaded/changed in that directory.

    (i am planning to have client pages on my website that have an included file upload/downloader hence the reason for my question)

    Anyone know if this is possible?

    Have a look here, PHP Script & Programs | Hot Scripts. I'm sure there is already a script written that does this, I'm not sure what category it would fall in though. Why not a notification when a file is uploaded, rather than checking later to see if it's there? A file that's been downloaded is still present where it was downloaded from, so a link to that file should be monitored (to know when its clicked), and to know whether or not the file has actually been downloaded would require I think a read thru the access logs.

    If your clients don't have access to FTP and are uploading/editing through a script, I would just embed the e-mail notification in the upload or save piece of the script.
