Websites Cop is a program for the Windows operating system that ensures that a webmaster or system administrator gets notified immediately if monitored files on a web server have been modified. This is done by linking local files to files on a configured ftp server that the program then checks continuously to make sure that they are identical.
Email notification is just one option to react on the modification of files on the server as it is also possible to enable the automatic repair mode which will replace the modified file on the web server with the local copy.
The configuration of the monitored files is unfortunately not as easy as it could be. It is for instance only possible to select single files on the local computer system to link them to files on the ftp server. The ftp server path needs to be added manually.
An option to add a directory with all its files and an option to automatically link that directory to a specific path would be more than welcome. It currently takes a long time to add all files of a website to the monitored file listing.
Another missing option would be to tell the program to backup a specific folder of an ftp server and configure the program automatically.
The program runs in the system background after configuration of the files that the user wants to monitor. Log files are generated automatically whenever a file was modified on the web server.
Websites Cop can be downloaded from the developer’s homepage. The program is compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the Windows operating system.
