I have a php page that does some things, but prints nothing.  I would like to add a statement at the end that redirects to another page.  I can do this in asp, but don't know how to do it in php.
Thanks.

you should technically use absolute pths (ie. a full url or the path from the root) although all browsers to my knowledge support relative paths (ie. the others files location relative from where the current file is).

exit; is not essential but ensures that no other code is processed after the header redirect.

The code must go before any out put including html, php (echo/print) and in some cases new lines and spaces
