Linux - Ubuntu - Monitor .conf and such files of installed applications


Hello guys,

I'm looking for a good way to monitor config files (from various software like: nginx, Apache2, PHP and such) and some way to keep an history of all the changes that can be made in them.

My server are on AWS Amazon and I would like to find a solid and effective solution.

Regards,

Monitor config files? why?

As for history, yes make a git repo and every time you change a config, you commit the changes to the repo as well. Since git is revision based, you can go back to any point in time and look at the committed files for that revision.

Tripwire works for that.
