Adding content to Uptime system monitoring software

I wanted to add a public status page to Uptime. A webpage where users and admins can both go to get a quick glance at server status information. Uptime currently uses applicationPortal as a basic version of a public status page but I wanted something with a clean look, twitter integration, and a more personal feel to it. So I’ve created a status.html page that can be added to uptime to allow non-admins to view server status in realtime at a glance.

All blacked out sections (for privacy reasons) are customizable by running a quick setup script that asks for some basic information (company name, twitter info, ect) and then copy’s a custom version of the webpage to the proper uptime folder. The webpage is written entirely in html and still uses applicationPortal for the status information.

*HOW TO INSTALL/USE*
download the tar.gz file from the below linked github page and place it in your home directory. Unzip the file and run ./install.sh. Answer the questions prompted by the script and then head on over to http://example.com/status.html ! where example.com is your uptime server. The script creates a backup of any modified files by tacking on a .backup extension on the original files.

You can find a complete list of the packaged files here: https://github.com/slacker87/uptimestatuspage

Please let me know if you find any bugs or have any issues, and enjoy your fancy new public status page!
