redirect command for php

I am trying to create a page that simply loads a redirect. The page is:

<?
redirect(append_sid("../login.php", true));
?>

I was modeling this after something I had seen in a script I downloaded, but it does not work.

essentially... I want it to redirect to a page called login.php that sits one folder down from the originating file. What code would I use here?

Thanks!

aumandg,

Try using the following ...

<?php
   header("location:../login.php");
   exit();
?>

The exit line after is recommended, especially if you want to make sure that the script stops.

Hi,

C&P from the help files.
 
http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp#hi69 : More than one Expert helped solve my problem. What do I do?

You split the points. Scroll down to the bottom of the question and click the "Split Points" link at the bottom of the page. Select the radio button of the comment who you want to Accept as the answer. Only one button can be selected. Set the point value (a text box above the comment) of how much you want this person to receive of the points. Then set the point values for each of the experts comments to whom you want to allocate points and these will be considered Assisted answers in helping you resolve the issue. Double check your information and then click the Submit button at the bottom of the page. One note: the total points of the splits must equal the amount you asked the question for itself, and no person can receive fewer than 20 points.

This post is not intended to be blunt or as a RTFM type of post. C&P is just easier than writing the text myself.

Kind regards

Give them all to Blue if you wish.  It was a dumb mistake and would not have worked.  I'm glad that I could help a bit.  Thanks for the fun question.
