How can I run a php script from my Spark Core?

I have a php script on my webserver that writes to my MySql database.

Is there any way to call the url domain.no/writedb.php

no sensors, no nothing. just trigger the URL every 5 minutes or so.

You can consider using Webhooks where your device will publish an event and trigger the url call

As @kennethlimcp said Webhooks is the easy way! Or a simple TCP client will do the job… you could use POST or GET, either would work depending on your PHP script.

Here is a link to my doorbell which posts to a PHP script on my server, you may find some goodies in there
