Refreshing a page

My dilemma: I have a page that can be accessed by 2 URLs. If they use URLB, then some scripts don't work properly.

To fix this, I thought I would put the following script at the top. It would notice the page URL, and refresh it to URLA. Problem is, that script does not work.

If anyone can help, I would appreciate it:

<script language = "php3">
$urla = getenv("SERVER_NAME");
if ($urla == "www.urlb.com")
{
Header('Location: http://www.urla.com/folder/page.php3');
exit;
}
</script>

COMMENTS ONLY. I will award points at the end.

I'm sure, you should replace
<script language = "php3">  by <?

and

</script> by ?>


<?
                      $urla = getenv("SERVER_NAME");
                      if ($urla == "www.urlb.com")
                      {
                      Header('Location: http://www.urla.com/folder/page.php3');
                      exit;
                      }
 ?>
will work fine :))

<? // This is _first_ line on the page

 if ( $SERVER_NAME == "www.urlb.com")
 {
    Header('Location: http://www.urla.com/folder/page.php3');
    exit;
 }
?>

Nope. Not only does it not matter whether it's <script language = php3> or <?, but if I use the '<?' tag, Front Page will move the code after the <body> tag.

I have a test server that works the code fine. My provider on this page is using the latest and greatest version.

Any other thoughts?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

check before your script if you have HTML tag.
The Header function must be called before any actual output is sent either by normal HTML tags or from PHP.

It maybe your problem

                       }
</script>

Note language="php" , not language="php3"

Use dreamweaver 3, very useful with PHP, you can edit your page
without any problems.

I'd use Dreamweaver3, but my host accepts FP2000.

There is no <html> before that.

Max - I cannot remember if I put php or php3. I will check tonight, and let you know.

The simplist answers always work. I am so used to saying PHP3, I forget to switch back.

Thanks.
