You could either store the information in a file which you then interpret with your webserver, or just use a game monitor statistics bar. There is another way, but I'm no expert on reading server info externally so I'll let someone else talk about that side of it.

I want to put the server status on the forum, that it gets the ip and shows Online/Offline and nuumber of players playing

i think this would work for the Online/Offline but what about Number of players ?

<?
$ip = "ipaddress";
$port = "port";
if (! $sock = @fsockopen($ip, $port, $num, $error, 5))
echo '<B><FONT COLOR=red>Offline</b></FONT>';
else{
echo '<B><FONT COLOR=lime>Online</b></FONT>';
fclose($sock);
}
?>
