using checksum on final php script folders.
How popular is using the checksum application in the final polish before script release.
One of the projects i am working on is a version control script but that is on the back burner right now as i have to get my other stuff up to date.
Normally what i do is once i get the test environment fully tested i just download those files and encrypt it, pack it up and its ready to go.
But in this case i thought i would try something different to learn something today, especially in the event of something getting corrupted in the process.
So i did some checking on using checksum application for windows on my entire script folder and wanting to make sure it matches the downloaded one.
I dont know honestly if this is common practice, or a necessary evil, or if i should use something else.
Just thought i would ask.
So long as I have a checksum available from the source, I always use a checksum to verify it. It just makes sure you get the file as expected, so it didn't download corrupt or intercepted and modified.
Typically these are things like packages though, not each individual file.
Yeah that was my plan is to use it on the final production copy just to make sure.
Can you checksum a zip or rar file or does it have to be uncompressed?
Note that that a compressed file will have a different checksum than an uncompressed file.
