Above is an example of a nifty server status script I have been using in a recent project.
Here is the base code for monitoring a web server:
<img src="http://site-to-check.com/online.png" alt="status" onerror="this.src='files/offline.png'" />
The setup is:
- An online icon (online.png) on the remote server you want to see the status of.
- An offline icon (offline.png) on the server that is going to show the status page.

Below are the images I use, found on Clker, an excellent online clipart resource.
