PHP redirect

 

PHP redirect

PHP redirect from page to URL. PHP 301 redirect.

This PHP redirection should return HTTP response status code: 301 Moved Permanently.

Search engines use the 301 response status code to transfer the page rank from the old URL to the new URL.

 

PHP header redirect

Replace old-page.php code with redirection code to new-page.php.

old-page.php:

<?php
// PHP permanent URL redirection
header("Location: http://www.domain.com/new-page.php", true, 301);
exit();
?>

The old page must have .php file extension.

The new page can be with any extension.

Addtype application/x-httpd-php .htm .html
