How to create a redirect in PHP

Say you had domain.com/folder, and you’d like it to automatically redirect to domain.com/otherfolder, do the following:

<?php

// redirecting elsewhere
header("Location: http://domain.com/otherfolder");
die();

?>

Add the above to a file called index.php in domain.com/folder. As soon as someone visits your location, the browser redirects to the new URL.
