the unixsocket can be added to existing tests:

  check process httpd ...
    # ... some existing tests start/stop program, etc.
    if failed unixsocket /etc/lighttpd/sockets/rt.socket then restart

You can also check content of the webpage with regular expression 

  if failed url http://user:address@hidden:8080/?querystring and content == 
'action="j_security_check"' then restart

Best regards,
