I have a simple page that uses php.
It basically a simple form with two input boxes and a submit button.
I enter the info, click the submit button, but if I refresh the page, the data input before is reposted. How do I clear the data after the submit.

Here is my php code. (which does not work).

<?php
if($_POST){
      $name = $_POST['commenterName'];
      $message = $_POST['comment'];
      $error = 0;
      
      if(empty($name)){
            $error = 1;
            echo "Please enter your name.";
      }
      if(empty($message)){
            $error = 1;
            echo "Please enter your message.";
      }
      if($error==0){
            $handle = fopen("comments.html","a");
            $messageToWrite = $name . ":<br/>" . $message . "<br/><br/>";
            fwrite($handle,$messageToWrite);
            fclose($handle);
            $name=null;
            $message=null;
            $messageToWrite = null;
      }
}
?>

Thank You!
