    Did you already have some output sent to the browser?  That may be
causing header() not to be able to send the Location header to the
browser properly.

    Well, if the above is in fact the case (and yes, different
versions and installations have been known to respond differently),
then you can use a browser-based meta refresh, which will work for all
browsers anyway:

// .... your code....
header('Location: show.php');
echo '<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;show.php">';

    This kills three birds with the same stone like so:

        1.) It tries to use the header() location redirect.
        2.) It falls back on browser-based redirection.
        3.) It forces a flush() of the data to the client, regardless
of minimum size limits.
        4.) It forces the script to exit with a non-error code of 0.
