I need a simple PHP program that runs on a web server to check a number of web pages to see if they have changed. The purpose is to detect if a URL is down or has been hacked.
The functionality will be as follows,
The system will be password protected (does not need to be super secure as it won’t be published on any search engines)
Once logged in, the system will display the list of web pages (URLs) that it is monitoring and the last time each page has been changed.
There will also be an option to remove a URL or add a new one.
There will also be an option to change the e-mail address the notifications are sent to.
The system will use a cron job to generate the task of checking on a page. Simply provide the CRON command that I can setup on the server.
Each cron job will initiate only one URL when run.
If a CRON job is run every 10 minutes, and there are 6 URLs, each URL will be checked every 60 minutes.
If the webpage has changed, send an e-mail to a specific e-mail address with the URL that has changed.
If the website is not accessible (server is down) also send an e-mail stating the page is down with the URL to the same e-mail address.
The list of URLs and their current size (or whatever variable is the best method for detecting a change) can be saved to a MYSQL database.
