    Yes, that's extremely interesting. I downloaded that link yesterday just before my post above and UpdateDocs was NOT in the package. I also see that Jack updated it yesterday.. apparently some time after the above posts since I immediately downloaded it again after Jack said to read UpdateDocs.. NOW it's there. So, I get to read it. Hopefully, it will answer any other questions I might come up with. There must have been some 'grey time' between when Jack uploaded the change and when the server made it available at the public link. Steve

    You know.. I'm really trying NOT to be a PAIN, but there is NO UPDATEDOCS directory that I can find .. not in the OSCV234BS directories, nor in the zip file associated with sitemonitor V3.3 or 3.4. WHERE is this directory supposed to be?? I AM *OLD* so maybe I'm just too THICK for this stuff? Steve

    Sorry... I have NO IDEA what that is supposed to mean. There is NO FILE named 'update' in the latest version addon zip - nor is the word 'update' mentioned anywhere in any file in the zip that I could find. Additionally there is NO NEW INFORMATION in the readme.txt file other than the addition of the filenames.php file. The ONLY text that I see is THIS - Changed code in admin/sitemonitor_config_setup.php to remove a strict standards error. - Changed code in admin/sitemonitor_config_setup.php to close table properly. - Replaced defined filenames to work with the latest oscommerce version. As far as I can tell .. all is working now (but I haven't test chron yet) ....EXCEPT for the fact that I have not received ANY emails after running sitemonitor. I DO get a report and it's acceptable (I think). The hacker test also seems to be OK since I'm pretty sure I haven't been hacked on this new server ... yet. Steve

    Thank you so much Arjan. That has at least gotten me to the next step. We'll see how long it lasts... :-) . Steve

    I am setting up a new installation of OscV2.3.4BS on a new server (at 1and1 host) running php7.1 and would like to get sitemonitor working on it. I have downloaded and installed the latest version (V3.3) but cannot get it working after several days of trying. It SEEMS that something is missing from the download or the readme.txt instructions. I can see sitemonitor on my admin page and it has Configure and Admin within it .. however neither page will run. 'Configure' errors out trying to load template_top.php (on line 380) - the error says ' require(DIR_WS_INCLUDEStemplate_top.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory. This is a fairly obvious error .. DIR_WS_INCLUDES is NOT defined. Well.. that constant is not defined in either of the configure.php files and it is not mentioned in the readme file for sitemonitor... so HOW can everyone else get this installed and working when I cannot? The store is working and the admin functions other than sitemonitor seem to work just fine, so I have to assume that DIR_WS_INCLUDES is not a part of the basic OSC V2.3.4BS package (I have double checked the zip file that it came from and even downloaded it again to be sure). I'm not sure whether sitemonitor is trying to open the 'main' template_top.php or the one that's in the admin directory. I tried adding a define for DIR_WS_INCLUDES in the admin configure.php file - and tried 'pointing' to one of the template files, then the other, but that just generates new errors, so I guess I must be missing something somewhere. DIR_WS_INCLUDES is definitely in the sitemonitor_configure_setup.php file and it's definitely NOT mentioned in the readme file, so it must be expecting it to be in the 'store' configure.php files. My original store is running a VERY OLD version of OSc - 2.2ms (which DOES use DIR_WS_INCLUDES) and I have been trying to migrate to the updated version. I could never get sitemonitor to work on the original store either so this was one of the main features I wanted to gain with the new version. Anyone have a guess .. anyone else using the newest 'responsive' version of Osc and have sitemonitor working on it? I'm not sure WHEN the BS version of Osc was generated, but it seems likely that it's been since 2016 - the date of the post just before this one. I've seen Jack's answer repeated over and over .. sitemonitor works with ALL versions of Osc... maybe not any more? I'm hoping someone still looks here occasionally :-). Steve
