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;

}

?>

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;

}

?>
