Tracking API


#1

I was about to create a page that tracks an image on another site for updates, and keeps the old ones as some sort of a “backup”.

I found this from google and was wondering, does it work that way.
I hope to get a reply soon and some help with that, so I can get my “tracker” functional.

I’m trying to make a thing that looks for changes of an image. If an change is seen, it will download it and move and rename the old one somewhere. Then (if possible) it could add a link to that old on a html table.

are you using this as a sort of cms to track versioning of actual images?

To do this, generate some kind of code or hash for your files, track them as Custom variables: Custom Variables Analytics - Analytics Platform - Matomo
this should get you started!

It’s hosted on a server I don’t have access to modify software, or access the shell. That’s why I need a script.

canto might do the trick it can scan volumes of files even remotely. you just need to set up the software and administer it

I’m running the script from a webserver I have no access to the software.
