How to Code a PHP Redirect - PHP Header Redirect



PHP Redirection

Redirection in PHP can be done using the header() function. To setup, a simple redirect simply creates an index.php file in the directory you wish to redirect from with the following content:
<?php header("Location: http://www.redirect.to.url.com/"); ?>

Where 'http://www.redirect.to.url.com/' is the URL you wish the users to be redirected to. This can also be a file, like so:

<?php header("Location: anotherDirectory/anotherFile.php"); ?>

Files can be of any type, including but not limited to HTML, python, PHP, CGI, Perl, and compiled CGI programs.
