How to refresh a page using PHP at regularly occurring intervals?

in PHP on February 21, 2020

I use the following:


It refreshes the current page after some code executes(or not, your choice)

Also, if you need to redirect it to another page, we can add the target page as following:

header("Refresh:0; url=another_page.php");

Many times, if you want to use it with JavaScript alert, it doesn't work or the alert doesn't show up properly. Alternately, we can use JavaScript method as well, like:
