I am running a Fedora 10 Server with websites managed by ISPConfig 3. I have an account that will be loading files in an FTP directory. I need to send notifications (email would be fine or I could run a command) when new files are uploaded in the directory tree. I thought of making scripts to do this myself, but it seems that linux may have tools already... I ran accrosss a program called dnotify which apparently was adopted by some linux distributions for a time. I do not believe that it monitors recursively. It also seems that dnotify was replaced by and upgraded project called inotify at some point. On my server, neither of these are installed or available through the default package manager - yum. I would have to patch my kernel to do so. I am not sure it is worth the trouble if there are better tools to get the job done. Does anyone have any experience with this? Cheers!
