this may work, but i hesitate, i've _never_ had to use exit to get my code
to excecute a redirect.  and i'm heavily reliant on this function.

did aarons fix work for you?  i think you're problem lies elsewhere.  as
i've just mocked the same thing on my server, but using 10 instead of
03...i'm on EST and its excecutes perfectly.

don't mean to cause waves...just curious.

if (strftime("%H") == "03")
 header( "Location: maintainence.php" );

Note the exit; line.

Subject: [PHP-DB] Line of code should work...but doesn't

I've been going a little crazy here with a single line of code that
should work, but doesn't. It's probably has something to do with the
fact that I've been staring at pages of code for months on end.

In order to make user that nobody is screwing with the database while
the daily backups and maintainence are running, I decided to make a
little thing that would keep people from logging in, etc. Here's the

if (strftime("%H") == "03") { header( "Location: maintainence.php" ); }

In theory, if it's any time between 03:00:00 and 03:59:59 the user
should be redirected to the page maintainence.php, but when testing it
passes over this line without a blip. Any ideas?

Feeling fried,
