Verifying if a Watch My Domains SED v4 Installation is fully UP & Running

There are a number of scripts and services that check if a website is up and running. However, checking if a web application is fully functional is not exactly the same as testing if a web page is up. Web applications may still show it’s interface even if there are errors that are then displayed elsewhere.

You can easily verify if an installation of Watch My Domains SED v4 is fully functional by checking if it’s testpad.php page returns a

<p>OK</p>

response.

You can add https://<yourinstallpath>/testpad.php to any monitoring script and look for the above response to monitor the application’s status.
