I have a WordPress blog hosted on IIS and I've been trying to get ISAPI_Rewrite to work so that I can prepend www to the URL. It isn't working after 3 hours, so I just want to use PHP redirect to get it working. I've done it before with ASP (which I've included) but I don't know PHP well enough to translate this code. Can you do it?
<%
If InStr(Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_NAME"),"www") = 0 Then
	Response.Status="301 Moved Permanently"
	Response.AddHeader "Location","http://www."
		& Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_HOST")
		& Request.ServerVariables("REQUEST_URI")
	Response.End
End if
%>

something like this:

<?
if (strpos($_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'], "www")===false)
    header("Status: 301")
    header("Location: http://".$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'].$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']");
}
?>

I forgotthe ;  at the end of header("Status: 301") and "exit;" in place of  "Response.End"

... The correct should be:

<?
if (strpos($_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'], "www")===false)
    header("Status: 301");
    header("Location: http://".$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'].$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']");
    exit;
}
?>
 
or 
 
<?
if (strpos($_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'], "www")===false)
    header("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently");
    header("Location: http://".$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'].$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']");
    exit;
}
?>

Oops, I did it again.. A little typo at the end of line ...($_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']") that  double quote doesn't exists.

I really think we should be able to delete ours comments.

Anyway, here is the correct code (hopefully :))

<?
if (strpos($_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'], "www")===false)
    header("Status: 301");
    header("Location: http://".$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'].$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);
    exit;
}
?>
 
or 
 
<?
if (strpos($_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'], "www")===false)
    header("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently");
    header("Location: http://".$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'].$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);
    exit;
}
?>

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.

you have forgotten the open bracket { and the www in your  Location:
<?
if(strpos($_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'], "www") === false) 
{
	header("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently");
	header("Location: http://www." . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] . $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);
	exit;
}
?>
