PHP Redirect

Redirection in PHP can be done using the header() function. To setup a simple redirect, simply create an index.php file in the directory you wish to redirect from with the following content:
        < ?php header("Location: http://www.redirect.to.url.com/"); ?>
        
Where 'http://www.redirect.to.url.com/' is the URL you wish the users to be redirected too. This can also be a file, like so:
        <?php header("Location: anotherDirectory/anotherFile.php"); ?>
        
Files can be of any type including but not limited to HTML, python, php, cgi, perl, and compiled cgi programs.
