I am beginner in php programming and am designing a basic website that can add a record, delete records and view all records in a database that was created using PHPmyAdmin.

After I have added a record I want to return to the page I came from, for this I was told to use -

header("Location: View.php");

For this line of code the following error appears -

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'header' (T_STRING) in C:\xampp\htdocs\New.php on line 114

Why is this happening and what can I do to fix it ?

What I have tried:

Tried searching websites and youtube videos hoping that they may tell me what the issue is and what can be done about it, but haven't found anything useful.

Well unless you show us what is in line 114 it's anyone's guess.

1 solution

The line
header("Location: View.php");
looks fine. But parsing errors may be also sourced by errors on previous lines. So inspect those or edit your question to show them. Common errors are a missing semicolon at the line end and unterminated string literals (missing the terminating single or double quote character or using the wrong one). That seems to apply here because T_STRING indicates a problem with a string literal.

This code should for example generate a similar error:
echo "Using header() function;
header("Location: View.php");
