This package can check if a server is up using an IFTTT service.

It provides a script that can read a configuration file to retrieve the URL of a site hosted in a server to monitor and the URL of an IFTTT service to access.

The script can send an HTTP request to check if the site's server to monitor is responding correctly.

Then, it accesses the IFTTT service to notify the up or down status of the site's server that is monitoring.

Once a site is live, it is essential to monitor the status of the site to ensure it continues to serve its audience as expected, or it is necessary to address issues that may arise and make the site stop working.

Issues that may sometimes happen may be related to security compromises or slowness.

PHP can check if a remote site works well by sending an HTTP request to check the server response.

This package provides a script that can monitor the status of a site server. The hand can notify interested system administrators using the IFTTT service when there is an issue.

This way, system administrators can automate actions to handle site server status changes, such as sending emails or recording events of server status in a database.
