How to determine change between two arrays

How to determine change between two arrays

Recently, I was building a historical data tracker, which would track any changes in settings across a large application. All of the settings would be pulled from their MySQL tables and stored in a PHP array. Storing those settings (just short of 25,000 of them) would have been unfeasible on the MySQL database.
