I've got the following script which just automatically redirects the users browser to another page, but is it possible to do it so the original domain name is shown, eg, if the script below was the index.html file for www.benjet.com which pointed to www.theaccommodationfinder.co.uk how would I get it to still show benjet.com?
Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 23 February 2004If you have several domains sharing the web space, your $_SERVER variables should include a variable telling you what the page was called up as (and there's $PHP_SELF too). From those you can work out your new location and ensure it's within the domain currently being browsed.
Posted by Chris_Isaac (Chris Isaac), 23 February 2004I have webspace, and I have virtual servers set up, but what I'm trying to do here is do a redirect to my machine at home, which I only have an IP address for.
Another thought, can this be done by configuring Apache on my home machine and setting up a virtual server there?
Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 24 February 2004Hmm ... You can set headers from your PHP ... but I think you need to do so in your home machine (i.e. the one you're redirected to) rather than the one thaty sends out the location.
Is your home IP address fixed IP? If so, you could give it a named domain. If not, your pages are liable to break and need fixing from time to time.
We have an excellenty book describing tricks and techniques with HTTP "HTTP Developer's Handbook" - it's actually the book I've reviewed for the next "Of Course" newsletter. But it's in Melksham and I'm in Dublin this week. If you go to our library and search for HTTP in book titles you'll find a description - it's by Chris Shiflett
