SiteMatch is a website management tool for automating the process of uploading new and changed files in a website. It does this by analysing the local copy and comparing information about the files contained within to the information stored the last time it carried out this process. Files it doesn’t recognise, or whose attributes have changed, can be uploaded to the remote server and the relevant data stored for comparison the next time.
