Cloud computing and Quick AWS EB Status Check page

I have been trying to play around with and create simple setups with different IaaS/SaaS offerings such as AWS and Azure. One of my first experiments was with using PHP on AWS Elastic Beanstalk.

First thought was to try out a health API, but it turned out free accounts did not have access to it. Wanting to dig into PHP for the first time in a while, I decided to look into ways to pull status updates onto a page or block. The result was essentially having PHP gather the most recent AWS RSS for a selected EB instance and add it to the page.

March 2020 edit: Needed to disable the EB instance this was hosted on indefinitely. Page has been moved to this website.
