 header("Location: http://whatever");


But just make sure of the syntax. Only double quotes, and another thing "DO NOT" send any output request before the header call. That's an error.

For eg.


 print "I just messed up the program.";
 header("Location: http://whatever");


This one's gonna create an error. Just remove the print and its fine.

Hope this'll solve your problem if its for PHP.
