Binary files

Top  Previous  Next

WebSite-Watcher can monitor binary files (for example ZIP or EXE files) without downloading them. Dependent from the server log file, one or a combination of the following checking methods is used:


Check by file date
Check by file size
Check parts of the file content


Normally no special settings are required for binary files. If WebSite-Watcher cannot identify a binary file automatically (for example when a script redirects to a binary file), then you have to change the file type from "auto detect" to "binary".
