A Message From The Founder...

As the founder of Nagios, I'm asking for your help in a cause that's dear to my heart.

I'm launching a new project to help better the world by providing the information, ideas, and inspiration that I believe can improve the lives of people everywhere.

I know you're busy managing networks, but I would appreciate it if you would consider liking my Facebook page and showing your support for the content and messages I produce by sharing them with your friends and family.

You can learn more about my project by visiting Thank you for your time. I wish you all the best in your endeavors, whatever they may be.

- Ethan

Monitoring the WordPress up-to-date status.
This script checks whether there are updates for your WordPress installation. It’s written in PHP to use the WordPress code itself, we don’t need to to reinvent the wheel ;-)
There are two types of checks:

Web-based checks: If you are not allowed or however not able to setup Nagios (or whatever monitoring solution you’re using) on the web-server you can check the WP-core-version remotely. The plugin will download your website and compares the version in the header with the lastes version provided by the WordPress-API. It’s only working if you don’t suppress the header field , e.g. with plugins like Secure WordPress. Just pass your domain together with --web to the plugin.

Local installation checks: If your monitoring solution has access to your installation files you should provide this path along with --dir.
