using checksum on final php script folders.
How popular is using the checksum application in the final polish before script release.
One of the projects i am working on is a version control script but that is on the back burner right now as i have to get my other stuff up to date.
Normally what i do is once i get the test environment fully tested i just download those files and encrypt it, pack it up and its ready to go.
But in this case i thought i would try something different to learn something today, especially in the event of something getting corrupted in the process.
So i did some checking on using checksum application for windows on my entire script folder and wanting to make sure it matches the downloaded one.
I dont know honestly if this is common practice, or a necessary evil, or if i should use something else.
Just thought i would ask.
