I put "load" in quotes because I'm not trying to open up a website via terminal. I have a PHP script on a web server that logs to a text file when it has been loaded. I'd like to set up a cron on a battery powered linux system to load the URL for this PHP script once per minute. I'd like to do this so that it runs until the battery dies and I can see how long it ran for by viewing the txt file on my server.
I'm trying to find out if there is something like a "ping" command for a specific URL, not just a server or IP. Hopefully that makes sense. =)
