http request

I am running a website but I still have problems with the "service temporarily unavailable error". I want to make a simple check if the website is up and running. Does anybody has an idea how to do it? (the site is password protected, so you have to add a user and pwd before logging in).

Cheers jurgen

You probably don't need any username and password: check the "ping" command.

I hope this helps.
