As I said originally, you might want to check out rkhunter. It'll check
your system for rootkits, and once configured - which isn't a big deal,
just a configuration file - will complain when run if something's changed.
You can tell it to look at your web pages.

Another thing to consider (and I really, really don't enjoy suggesting
it), is selinux. Turn it on to at least permissive, and it'll bitch and
moan if something's changed. Turn it to enforcing, and *nothing* will be
allowed to be changed. It is, however, a royal pain to configure, esp.
when you want to be able to allow a directory for users to put pics.
