Wish I knew how to do this on my own but I've wasted too much time on it as it is.... help! No idea what syntax to use.

I need to make the while condition a curl test to see if I get a result 200.
If I don't, then loop again until I do.
Once I do, then continue on with the script.


while "curl -m 5 -k --key sever.key --cert server.crt -u "user:1234" -s -o /dev/null -w '%{http_code}\n'" ;
                if [  $RES -ne 000 ];then echo "AVAILABLE" ; fi
        sleep 2

echo "would continue with the script from this point on..."
