It didn't fail. It just doesn't write to the file, It writes to output after the command is executed. I want the times to be recorded to a log file

Nope that didn't work and my php is in /usr/bin ... I was typing this instead of copying, so missed it.:p

comment Strange rsync behaviour
hey, I found out a way :)) Rsync has a -c (checksum) option. so, rsync -cav , calculates the file checksum and tells me exacly what files are different (while ignoring the similar files)

comment Strange rsync behaviour
I ran more tests and it seems that rsync looks at the last modified time of the file, instead of only file contents. Is there a utility that allows me to list files based on the differences in them and not just update time ?
