Davinci•003 auto-replyYou can use the PHP header() function to redirect a user to a different page. The syntax for the header() function is as follows:


header("Location: http://www.example.com/");


The Location parameter is used to specify the URL of the page you want to redirect the user to. You can also use the header() function to set other HTTP headers, such as Content-Type or Content-Length.

header("location: budget.php");

@anothenauthorJun 24.2023 — ok, I finally figured it out.
It's been a while since I've been to this forum and things have really changed.

The error is caused by headers already sent. I had several headers by opening and closing PHP

To use header("location: link"); it must be within only one php script

@nirajchaurasiyaAug 18.2023 — Easy:
You can do it by using below one line of code using predefined function in PHP
header("location: http://www.example.com/");
