How to set up a cron job on Windows

As you probably know, the easiest way to implement automatic monitoring of your services is by creating a periodic job on your system. On Linux-based machines this is quite easy, and lots of hosting panels provide web-based configuration tools. But on Windows, setting up a cron job can be a real pain. One user of PHP Server Monitor, Robert Inzano, has taken the time to put together a step by step tutorial on how to set up cronjobs on Windows. Please see attached PDF file for the complete walk-through.... read more

Call for translators: v3.1 coming up

Hi,

A new minor release (v3.1) is coming up soon with a couple of amazing features (e.g. Pushover.net support), and I am looking for some assistance updating the translations. So far, PHP Server Monitor has been translated into 12 languages (from 3.1 this will also include Russian and Danish), but some languages need to be reviewed and updated. If you have some spare time and are fluent in one of these exotic languages, please consider donating a minute of your time to help me ship v3.1 with up-to-date translations. If your language is not on the list, new languages are also very much welcome.... read more

Using Composer for dependencies

The project uses a couple of open source libraries such as PHPMailer. To avoid having to include them in the repository, we have just switched to Composer to install them.

For regular releases this will not make a difference, all dependencies will be included in the zip and tar files so no extra action is required. If you are downloading the source from GitHub, however, you will need to install these dependencies yourself. To do that, you can run the following command from the command line after downloading the source:... read more

Along with that, lots of internal refactoring (think PDO, new module structure, and an upgraded mailer library).... read more

CVS updated

CVS has been re-enabled for this project. Yesterday I imported the latest version, v2.0.0, as module "phpservermon-2" into the sourceforge repository. In the next few weeks I'll try to release a new version with some new features, so keep an eye on the CVS for the latest updates.

For now, I have added 2 minor changes:
- curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, 'HEAD'); has been replaced by curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_NOBODY, true); in classes/sm/smUpdaterStatus.class.php

A new layout for a new version

I'm working on a new version of the PHP Server monitor. It's a tool that keeps an eye on your servers and notifies you by email or text message if one goes down. The new release is going to have a lot more features and it'd be nice to give it a bit of a look. I have no problem with css and html, but when it comes to photoshop and creativity I'm just not the right person.

Next week I'll be on holiday for a month, after that, in August, I'm planning to release the new version.... read more

Version 1.0.1 released

A minor update of the server monitor has been released.

This release fixes a bug in the log display. In the previous version it ordered the entries by the formatted date & time, rather than using the raw data, which resulted in a wrong list of log entries.

No database changes have been made, the only 2 updated files are "log.php", and "tpl/log.tpl.html".

Thanks to everyone for using server monitor. Bug reports and feature requests are most welcome.... read more
