Auto update

I'm wondering if this is possible and if so, how?

My customers buy a tour from me. I give them a folder with all the files and they upload it. Now I suddenly discovered a bug that might cause the tour to crash in one of my plugins. I have to mail all the customers (to uphold my companies good name) and send them an updated plugin. Same case if a new version of krpano comes out.

Do scripts exist (either in php or actionscript) that can check my server if a newer version exist, download it (putting it on their server) and then refresh the page? Kinda like how express install and some AIR apps works.

when you want to put something on a server (like a newer version),
you need to do that on the server side (e.g. via php),

e.g. serve the pano page on your client pc via php,
and on each view (or just once a day) call back to your server
and look if there is something new, and if, download it via php and install it,

best regards,

Or host your panoramas (like i do) and offer them a link, iframe or embedding with JS. Then the modifications work in real time.
