php - check refering domain - redirect to home page how too?

 10:48 pm on Apr 26, 2002 (gmt 0)

hello everybody !

i have a php site and another on the same server -

our goal is to restrict acess to site #1 unless the request is coming from site #2

my public access to this site is at url: mysite.com/webShop/

my actual files are at url: dothework.com/webShop/

we want to redirect anybody attempting to access dothework.com/webShop/ to the home page mysite.com/webShop/

the sites are on the same server -

maybe some sort of refer check / redirect can be added to the header file???

many thanks for any ideas!

maybe something in the file like

$redirectPage = "public site";

if ($HTTP_REFERER != "url from other site")
header ("Location: $redirectPage");

Using the HTTP_REFERER variable is not 100% fool-proof as referrer logging can be turned off by the user either at the browser or through security software.

A safer route would be to use an .htaccess redirect:
