Yes, this is possible by using the "_doaction" url path. The URL to use will 
look something like this:


Where action is a choice of start, stop, restart, monitor or unmonitor and 
service is the service name in your .monitrc control file. If you have password 
protected access to Monit (which you should), your script will need to create a 
basic authentication HTTP header. Doing this over https is also recommended.
