index.php redirect


Hi all,

I have a script that is locked to my domain. It is no longer supported and therefore I cannot change this domain lock. The license requires access to the script by having a www in the address not just http

Therefore users trying to access the script without www in the address are displayed an error message. Is there a code I can insert into the index page so if the user accesses it without www in the address it will redirect to the same index page but by including www in the address.

Sorry I cant be more specific, currently im not certified to post urls so its made it a little hard to explain my situation easily.

Im hosted on a windows server so believe I cannot use .htaccess, any help will be greatly appreciated as my php knowledge isnt very good.

Thanks

Welcome to WHT!

all i can suggest is you put an index.html page in there along with it with meta tags in that redirect it to www.

Code:
<html><head><META 
http-equiv="refresh" content="2;URL=http://www.yourdomain.com/index.php"></head><body> <center>If you are not redirected to the site within 2 seconds <a href="http://www.yourdomain.com/index.php">Click Here</a></body></html>
there's the html code for the whole page.

there is also a way to do it via the php script however you haven't posted the source for ti so we can't really help you with something to put in the php script

also this thread should be in the programming discussion forum as it's not a tutorial

You can also use PHP:

PHP Code:
<?PHP header("Location: http://www.example.com/"); exit ?>

Thanks to the both of you for replying.

This was my first post on this forum and therefore could not post direct links or use the PHP tags, I figured it would be abit messy if I just posted the contents of the index.php straight into the thread post.

Do you just need the first few lines or the whole file (635 lines) ?

A index.html file wouldnt be beneficial really as it wouldn't solve the problem if the user typed in the address but only omitted the www part.

Sorry for posting in the wrong thread, figured programming discussion would be the most likely place, didnt realise I was in the tutorial sub-forum though, could a mod please move this to the relevant location please.

layer0: Do I simply paste that code into the index.php file and enter the location I want it to redirect to?

Thanks again to you both

I have also posted a support ticket to my webhost, although its strictly not his responsibility to support this kind of question he is a helpful guy and may sort something out for me.

Any other suggestions would be appreciated. The script does call a config file, perhaps a code could be placed in there to avoid looping in the index file.

an htaccess redirect is probably the quickest and easiest way to do that, just add
Redirect / http : / / www dot whatever you want dot com

(obviously take out the spaces in the url)

Few Suggestions:-
I Report this Bug to Developer of this system rather your hosting company. It is one min job to solve.
II Rename the Main Index.php to anything.php and add this code
[PHP
<?PHP
// filename: index.php
header("Location: http://www.example.com/anything.php");
?>
[/PHP]

Add code below to top of index.php or config.php file:

PHP Code:

if ($_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']!="www.YourDomain.com") {
 
header("location: http://www.YourDomain.com");

If we use upper script for this:

PHP Code:
 if ($_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']="www.sub-domain.YourDomain.com") {
 
header("location: http://www.YourDomain.com/sub-domain/");

Can you tell me "it will run"?

Example 3 is also a very good test result.

Further to what I stated above,

I would change:

PHP Code:
if ($_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']="www.sub-domain.YourDomain.com") {
 
header("location: http://www.YourDomain.com/sub-domain/");

for:

PHP Code:
if (isset($_SERVER['HTTPS']) && $_SERVER['HTTPS'] == "on") {
 
header("location: https://www.YourDomain.com/sub-domain/");
 } else {
 
header("location: http://www.YourDomain.com/sub-domain/");
