Well you can actually,

If you start your script IMMEDIATELY (well before you output anything) with:


This will buffer output so you can use your header anywhere in your script


and then if you weren't redirected then you send the output with

PHP redirects using the header() function, but it's not very useful if
information has already been sent to the browser.  ANY information,
including a hard return.  So if you have a login script, you would start
your session, register any variables, then redirect.

<?php header("Location: index.php"); ?>

That would do the trick.  But like I said, once the parser begins to write
HTML to the browser, then you can no longer send HTTP headers.

Is there a way to redirect to a different script in PHP? I call it
redirecting, but can't find it in the documentation using that track.

I have a script...that if a certain criteria is met, I want to load a
different script. Haven't been able to figure that out yet. I have gotten
about it by conditionally executing a location.href in javascript. It works,
but would like to know how to do it in PHP.
