Sometimes it is necessary to verify if the files of a site on the server are up to date and were not changed eventually by an attacker that took advantage of a security hole.

There are some solutions that compute hashes of all the files in the server but they do not tell whether the files different because they are not up to date with the latest development version or were changed eventually due to a security attack.

This class provides a solution that uses a different approach. It calls a script on the server that lists the existing files.

This way it can compare list of files on the production and the development environments, or even compare the files installed on different production or testing servers.

Read this article to learn more details about how this notable PHP package works.




The package PHP Web Site Compare Files is one of the few PHP packages that was considered notable recently because it does something that is worth paying attention.

The basic purpose is: Compare the list of files of two Web sites

Here follows in more detail what it does:

This class can compare the list of files of two Web sites.

It can take the URLs of two sites and compares the list of files between them.

The class uses file_list.php script that needs to be installed on both site servers, so it can use that script to retrieve the files list.

The class displays a report of the files that are missing or changed between servers, as well the respective modification dates and sizes.

Notable PHP packages can be often considered innovative. If this package is also innovative, it can be nominated to the PHP Innovation Award and the author may win prizes and recognition for sharing innovative packages.

If you also developed your own notable or innovative packages consider sharing them, so you can also earn more visibility for your package.
