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 knowing exactly which files were added, changed or deleted means that you can recover quickly, and with complete confidence that you reversed every change made by the hack.
You can scan your site manually from the admin interface, or 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.
The History Detail page shows which files actually changed.
You can work your way back through a complete history of every change to every file on your site.
Eyesite comes several user-donated translations. Updates are always appreciated.
