Yes, you can try use javascript to make a page redirection, like:

<script language="javascript">
location.href = "c.php";
</script>


or use Meta Tag redirection, like:

<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="10; URL=c.php">
</head>

>>header should be posted first before any output

you mean in php?

basically it means we cannot write any output (example using echo command) to the page before the command "header" in php, because the header information already been modified.

There are times when I have encountered the need to decompress a response from a PHP request. This is how it's done, but you must have control of the request and you can set the Accept-Encoding header.
