A PHP Redirect automatically transfers a web user from one URL to another. For example, typing foo.com in the browser automatically transfers the user to another URL bar.com.
The PHP Redirect command:
<?php header("location: [some-url]"); ?>
Replace [some-url] with the URL where you want the redirection to take place.
header("location: ./version2/index.html"); =>redirect to "index.html" page in subfolder called "version2"
header("location: http://www.yahoo.com"); =>redirect to a website called yahoo.com
If PHP is not available, it’s also possible to use other redirects:
* HTTP Redirects
Replace [time] with seconds. This will pause the browser for the specified number of seconds. Replace [some-url] with the target URL you want to redirect.
The above HTTP based redirect needs to be in the
region of the HTML code.
Replace [time] with milliseconds. This will pause the browser for the specified number of seconds. Replace [some-url] with the target URL you want to redirect.
For example, setTimeout("location.href='http://www.yahoo.com'", 5000);
