How to check activity log or similar?

Post by cornevoogt » Sat Jan 12, 2019 3:21 pm

My website run on a Raspberry PI. Every night I'm making an image of the Raspberry PI, but I only want to make an image when the content has been changed since the last image. By enabling the Debug System I get a file jcontroller.log.php that changes when the content is change, but than I have the JOOMLA! DEBUG CONSOLE visible at my website. Is there an other way to have a script check if the content has been changed?

The script could use the MySQL statement CHECKSUM TABLE against relevant tables and compare the values to the previous checksums, stored in a custom table.
