The page isn't redirecting properly

Last Modified: 2015-02-27
Hi Experts,

I've just uploaded a PHP code that works on my localhost, but on the server FF gives me:

The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

    This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

IE just hangs.

The code behind this is
  $user = $_POST['txtUser'];
        $password = $_POST['txtPassword'];
        $login_status = Login::verify_login($user, $password);
        if ($login_status == 'admin') {
            header('Location: index.php?action=list');
        else if ($login_status == 'rs') {
            header('Location: ../dispatch');
        else {
            header('Location: ../?type=err&msg=User Id / Password combination not found.');

Open in new window

What could it be?  Again, under localhost, no issues..
