Please check the HTTP Data Advanced sensor, it will allow you to poll the URL of the php script and store/analyze the results over time with PRTG and generate alerts.

For more information, see PRTG Manual: Custom Sensors.

Please refer to the http-data-advanced tag for related topics on the Knowledge-base.
