    I have a site with a dedicated IP address, but it's not hosted on a dedicated server, nor do i have root access to the server.

    I wanted to know if there was a way to monitor a specific port, for data being sent in, and then pipe the data strings to a PHP file. From there, i plan on just parsing the string and adding the data to a MySQL DB. The second part isn't a problem, i just didn't know if there is a way in cPanel to run a port listener application.

    On my IIS server, where i do have root access, i have an application running that does the needed work when data is sent to it. Unfortunately i don't have all of the same access rights on my cPanel server and i do not want to invest in another dedicated server at this point.

    There is no way that I'm aware of for you a website owner with a cPanel account to monitor traffic on the server.

    You can pick up a VPS pretty inexpensively if that's an option for you.
