FoxMonitor for Linux

FoxMonitor is a PHP script which relies on incron (inotify cron) to automatically sort Firefox’s downloaded files.

This code is inspired in the incron-PHP tutorial from this very same website, but optimized for general use. However, it is still considered in testing phase (beta).


  • PHP 5.2 CLI version (must be in /usr/bin/ directory).
  • incron
  • Mozilla Firefox


Read the tutorial.


  • October 30, 2008:
    • Fix: Space in filenames prevents the script from moving the file.
    • Fix: $DO_LOG not handled.
