phpScanner – 1.3
What is phpScanner
You’ve just finished building a large php based site, and the client wants some changes made. So sure enough, you make the changes and push them live, only to get a call from the client about some pages not working. Sure enough, that little change you made messed up some obscure, buried page which is now throwing errors or worse.
That’s where phpScanner comes in. With just the click of a mouse (ok, you have to enter some basic information, like the url too), phpScanner will scan the full site (restricted to that domain) checking to see if anything “suspicious” comes up. In the event that it throws a visible text error, phpScanner will even tell you what error it is throwing.
Pages are categorized as follows, depending on what phpScanner finds:
No Errors – page appears to be fully functional
Probable Error – something feels off, might be nothing, but check it out
Error – uh oh, something’s going on here
Skipped – phpScanner cannot verify .mp3s, .movs, flash, etc generated by php
Unable to Check Errors – eg the page could not be loaded, server not found, etc
phpScanner can quickly be installed on any server running PHP 5.
- Download and unzip the file on a php based environment (see, told you it was easy)
- No known bugs at this time
phpScanner is now being released under the GPL version 2 license. If you do find phpScanner to be useful, or have any suggestions or ideas, please let me know
