Anyone aware of a script or software that watches for file changes and alerts?

    Looking for software that I can install on a webserver and monitor certain folders. For example I want to be able to monitor /web folders and subfolders for all our websites and have a flexible way of alerting admins or the end users. Would be good to be able to exclude certain log files or cache files that get updated, or specify only *.php and *.css files and anything else that can get executed.

    Have been looking around on google and not finding what I am looking for. Even a commercial product would be OK.
    Was hoping someone had already implemented something like this and could give some hints.

    The last part of the first post in this thread has a sample of inotify script being used.

    After looking around I see inotify is not recursive and it looks like a lot more work then I want.
    Think I will give ISPProtect a try. As new websites gets added they are automatically tested as far as I can tell from reading about it on their website.
