I have a set of add-ins that are often updated by the originator, but unless they send out a notification I dont know there is an update.
they do keep all the most current ‘versions’ in a single directory at another site. How can I check that directory to see if the version I have is the same as the version they have?
I might have /files/mods/change_picture_style_ver_5.2.txt
But the site has
Hopefully there is an easy way that I can review 20-30 of my files to see if each is “up-to-date”.
Thanks in advance for any help.

I would assume the files are, because thats usually where they point you to to download the most recent version.
But I may not always know what the most current file name is.
My directory contains
If the filename matches in their directory I’m good…

I’d be thinking about using Ajax. For which cross domain restrictions may have to be relaxed (allowing the source site). I don’t think php could create such interaction with an alien server.July 16, 2015 at 7:07 pm #205203

(which will probably be a new ver is out ver 5.3)July 19, 2015 at 12:32 pm #205235
I am waiting to hear back from the Admin about setting up an actual folder directory location on the server that the program currently resides on.
In the meantime, I have set up a test folder location on my web site.
Not sure if any settings need to be adjusted by my ISP in order for this to work. I did set the permissions for this directory to 755.
and there are a dozen or so useless files there, with the correct filenames.
Thanks for any help,

Actually, it probably could but I doubt they’d let people run remote scripts on their server.
