Script ASP to PHP

I need help converting the attached code from ASP to PHP for an internal site. I don't know PHP and the online ASP to PHP converters I found don't seem to be doing the job. 301 Redirects are not an option.

Basically I'm trying to find servers domain name, then check the string to see if I contains the older domain name, if so I want to replace the older domain name and redirect.
redirect to
Thispage ="http://" & Request.ServerVariables("SERVER_NAME") & Request.ServerVariables("URL")

If Instr(ThisPage, "oldsite.com") Then
Thispage = Replace(Thispage, "oldsite.com", "newsite.com") 
response.redirect (ThisPage)
End If

$Thispage ="http://" . strtolower($_SERVER["SERVER_NAME"]) . $_SERVER["SCRIPT_NAME"];

if( false!==strpos($ThisPage, "oldsite.com") )
	$Thispage = str_replace($Thispage, "oldsite.com", "newsite.com");
	header ('Location: '. $ThisPage);
