Need Tool to Manage Configuration Changes
Is there a tool that can monitor a specified set of configuration files (such as my.cnf, vhosts.conf, php.ini, etc.) and log any changes made to these files (diff?) with a datetime stamp of when the change occurred?
We recently had a situation where one of our admins changed a file which later caused Apache to crash. It took us a few hours to figure out what had been changed. If the change had been automatically logged somewhere, it would have taken only a few minutes to get the server running again.
Is there such a tool? Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated.
