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. You don't have to do anything else. Once setup, Eyesite is completely automatic.
The main status page tells you which files were added, changed, or deleted by the last scan.
The History page shows the history of all past scans, retained for as long as you choose. You can browse or search the history to see which files changed, and when.
The History Detail page shows which files actually changed.
Eyesite comes with several user-donated translations. Updates are appreciated.
The Eyesite Plugin
You can use the free component to scan your site as often as you want, but for fully automated operation, you need the Eyesite plugin, which scans your site automatically at regular intervals. Once you buy the plugin you can use it on as many sites as you want, forever. The plugin is updated from time to time to add new features or for compatibility with new versions of Joomla, so we offer several different subscriptions. All include support.
|Latest Eyesite Versions
The latest versions of the Eyesite component and plugin support Joomla 3.10, all versions of Joomla 4, and Joomla 5 with or without the backward compatibility plugin.
For Joomla 3 sites older than 3.10, you'll need the old versions.
If you buy the plugin, you can download both versions.
