Redirecting

tvientitvienti Posts: 230Member
Hi there. I think I've gotten myself so deep into this question that I'm missing the simple answer. I have scripts that I want to work their magic, then redirect to another page. Obvious example is Login.php...

[code]
Do l/p match?
Yes: Redirect to Account/Home.php
No: Display some error message on this page
[/code]

What's the best method for the redirection? 403 response? Is there a way to do it on the server-side so that the client or their browser doesn't even know there was a redirection? It's not a big deal either way, I'm just curious what the best practice is here.

Thanks,
-T

    Thanks. I actually checked that out already and am so far using header() for my redirects. I settled with 303 See Other, which seems the most appropriate for a situation where the original URI is what should have been requested, but the response should be found at another URI.

    Just wanted to run it by the masses and see if anybody had some input on a better solution, more standard solution, or any hangups that might cause (with indexing and the like)

    Thanks for the reply :)
