How do I Redirect url With PHP Script?

How do I redirect url with PHP script? How can I use a PHP script to redirect user from the url they entered to a
different web page/url? Yes, you can do these adding a small php snippets in your header section.

Here I have share a small PHP (PHP Hypertext Preprocessor) snippets which will help you to redirect your url to another url By using PHP’s “header” function. The header function is a PHP specific function and can not be used outside of PHP.

Redirect One Page to Another

 header("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently");


<?php header("Location:", true, 301); ?>

Redirect from file to directory root

if(isset($_SERVER['HTTPS']) and 'on' === $_SERVER['HTTPS']) {
    $location = 'https://';
} else {
    $location = 'http://';
// Get the servers base URL
$location .= $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] . '/';
// Get the current URI without a file name in it
$location .= dirname($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']) . '/';
header('Location: ' . $location);

I took the PHP tags so don’t forget to remove those in if you need to. Thanks Brad Knutson for this important PHP Redirect snippets.
