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
<?phpReplace [some-url] with the URL where you want the redirection to take place.
header("location: ./version2/index.html"); =>redirect to "index.html" page inIf PHP is not available, it's also possible to use other redirects:
subfolder called "version2"
header("location: http://www.yahoo.com"); =>redirect to a website called yahoo.com
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="[time];
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.
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="5;
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.
