View Full Version : Script Update Checker

03-09-2007, 05:53 AM
Hey Guys,

I am currently developing a new version of an online DJ Panel that I created and want to incorporate an update notification system/page. Basically I just want it to alert the user if an update is available....

I have been looking around and have found that the supposed best way to do this would be by a text file stored on my web server that the script checks using fopen or file_get_contents, would this be the best way to try and do this?

Any opinions are welcome! Just looking for advice. Thanks! :thumbsup:

Yeah, that's pretty much the best way. You'll probably want to have the script compare it's version against it and tell the user they need to upgrade with a short message.
