    How can I check is my website is up?

    I need some way of checking to see if my website is up and if other people can get to it. I can always get to it because the server is on my computer. But how can I make sure other people will be able to get to it before I start linking people to it?

    Ok but it's stupid and it's really only meant for a certain group of people. So don't laugh. (Assuming you can even get to it.) It's

    You could also find a web proxy server and request the url through the proxy.
    If you are learning PHP, developing PHP code, or debugging PHP code, do yourself a favor and check your web server log for errors and/or turn on full PHP error reporting in php.ini or in a .htaccess file to get PHP to help you.

    Ask the people who you intend to view it to look at it on their computers.

    Have a friend put an image on their website that is an absolute reference to
    a file on your website ... example:

    Pretend your site is called www.digger.com, and you have an image
    stored on your website called /images/test.jpg

    Your friend would put this somewhere on their website:
    <img src="http://www.digger.com/images/test.jpg">

    If you viewed their website and the image was there, your site
    would be active and available. If your server was down, the image
    would be a box with an 'x' in it.

    ===========

    Digger ...
    I see you're a regular on this forum.
    If you PM me with your URL, I can create a special secret
    page on my website that "pings" your URL and displays an
    "active" (or "not active") message.

    Using PHP scripting.
