url ping for pages that should not exits

Dec 30, 2012 at 2:18 PM

I had an issue where someone had updated a production site and included a robots.txt file from our staging sites which are also external due to the fact that our QC staff are in India.  So I needed a way to make sure that this did not happen again. I added a setting to the URLping health check to let it only report on success.

Then I just setup a check config to check once a day to to see if the robots.txt file exists in production and if it does I get an alert. 

It would be nice to have this in a future version of the health Check. It was a very simple update.
If you want me to submit the code, let me know.

 

thanks
