Eyesite keeps an eye on your website, alerting you by email if any files are added, changed, or deleted.
Eyesite scans your directory structure, storing the details of every file in a database table. The details stored include the file date/time, size, and the md5 checksum of each file. Even the smallest change to a file changes its checksum, so Eyesite can detect any files that are new, changed, or deleted. Every time Eyesite scans the site, if it discovers any changes, it sends you an email with the details, and logs the details in its history.
Eyesite can't stop your site being hacked, but it alerts you promptly, and tells you exactly what was changed so that you can recover quickly and completely.
You can scan your site manually from the admin interface of the FREE component, or you can buy the plugin to scan your site automatically at regular intervals.
The main status screen of Eyesite tells you which files have been added, changed, or deleted. In manual mode, you can accept or reject changes, which helps you keep track of changes that you have reviewed and changes you haven't reviewed. In automatic mode, you don't have to do anything at all - Eyesite simply maintains a detailed history of all changes to files on your website with no manual intervention required at all. In either case you can always look back through the history to see which files changed and when.
The History page shows the history of all past scans and administrative actions. You can search by filename to find all of the changes to any file.
The History Detail page shows which files actually changed.
Eyesite comes with several user-donated translations. Updates are always appreciated.
