I won’t say much, sometimes you just need to trigger a remote script or test if it works.
Here’s how to do that in command line.
wget is a “a non-interactive network retriever” as described in the docs.
wget -q 'http://graphicmaniacs.com' > /dev/null
curl is a “command line tool and library for transferring data with URLs”
curl -s 'http://graphicmaniacs.com' > /dev/null
And of course, if you want the commands to not output anything in case of error, append
2>&1 to the end of command
Telnet is another interesting approach in case you don’t have wget or curl, or you are on a limited system.
telnet graphicmaniacs.com 80 GET / HTTP/1.1 Host: graphicmaniacs.com User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_10_5) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/54.0.2840.98 Safari/537.36
Finish the telnet command with additional newline (hit enter again).
4. netcat or nc
This is another way to do it. Depending on the release, you could have “netcat” or “nc”, so check your system which one you have
printf "GET / HTTP/1.0\r\nHost: graphicmaniacs.com\r\n\r\n" | nc graphicmaniacs.com 80
