Create a pinger url?
where do I start?

 12:46 am on Jun 28, 2005 (gmt 0)

I'd like to setup a pinger url, but don't know where to start.

What I'd like to do is as follows. Everytime a new entry is entered into a database (whether entered automatically with URL variables or through a webform) a url is "pinged" with the new information.

For example, say I enter the following items into a database

Entry1 Entry2 Entry3

A url is generated similar to the link below


and executes it self by visiting another predefined url with the newly entered information. Where do I begin and what's the best method of accomplishing this?

What is it exactly that you have problem with?

Generating of url or visiting it (you can use header("Location: http://www.example.com/"); ) for this purpose?

I don't know how I would set up the code to "ping" the url everytime there is a new item entered into the database.

I know what code to use to actually execute the ping (header location), but not how to execute the command that tells it to do it.

Everytime a specific action occurs, a url of mine is pinged with the new data which then gets inserted into a database. From there I would like to ping another url with the new database information from that entry.

mysql_query("insert .... statement");

if(mysql_insert_id() > 0){
