What Is PHP Server Monitor?

There is a PHP script that checks whether your website and server are running. Each server user can be assigned a mobile number and an email address, and each user can manage their services and websites using the web-based user interface. With PHP Server Monitor, an open-source tool, you can test your servers (IP addresses, domain names) for issues or have an email or SMS sent when something goes wrong. Users and administrators can both view graphs of uptime and response time on the HTTP status code, which is used to check websites.
