F-Bar provides a basic monitoring for Laravel Forge provisioned servers. The monitoring is done over https and you only have to install a tiny php-script.
SSH connections over mobile connections are very error-prone since the session can be disconnected at any time. The http-protocol, on the other hand, is stateless and made for disconnecting; therefore, I chose to use this method instead.
SSH into your server
Go to a public web directory which is servered over SSL
bash <(curl -s https://installer.laravel-forge-menubar.com/stats_installer.sh)
Choose a password that will protect your endpoint if someone accidentally discover it
The default filename is
stats.php but you can choose whatever you like.
In F-Bar iOS: tap the monitor button
Add the URL and password to the script. URL and you are done
Validate the URL and you should get a positive response.
