redirect to the receipt

Discussion in 'PHP' started by pshaw, May 2, 2021.

  1. #1
    Hi, a little prob with code. I have a payment program and want to follow with the receipt. The following
    code is the receipt.
    1) I've tried to redirect to the receipt file after payment. I have yet to achieve that.
    2) I want the receipt# on the receipt. I swear, I'm trying
    3) I need to send 3 variables to the receipt program, you're probably laughing thinking how simple this is
    I've poured thru the manuals & forums and the discussions are far past my little efforts. Pointers, anything?
    ---------------------------------
    the code:
    <?php
    echo "<center>";echo date('m/d/y');echo "<br />";
    
    // Include config file
    require_once "getprerentdb.php";
    
    //MySqli Select Query
    $results = $mysqli->query("SELECT * FROM numberstbl");
    $receiptno = "receiptno";
    $sql = " UPDATE numberstbl
      SET $receiptno = $receiptno + 1 where id=$id  ";
    echo "receiptno has been updated successfully !";
    echo "<center>";echo "Receiptno is $receiptno";echo "<br />"; // doesn't work
    
    $tenant=$_POST['tenant'];
    $rentpaid=$_POST['rentpaid'];
    $rentdue=$_POST['rentdue'];

    What are you trying to do? Its not clear at all.

    The code to redirect using PHP is this:

    header("location: your_url_here"); exit;

    You can pass variables to next page like this:
    your_url?var1=value&var2=value2&...

    Replace the "your_url" with an actual URl, then put that in "header" code.

    Like this:
    header("location: https://dptv.in/?v=1&z=2"); exit;

    Use that line wherever you want the redirect to happen.

    Thanks for responding. I fill in a form(payments.html) to indicate payment which updates the payment table.
    This is done with "payments.php". I'd like to then redirect to the receipt program(rentreceipt.php) with
    the three variables, "tenant"(who paid), "rentpaid"(how much) and "rentdue"(still owed). I don't understand
    what you're calling "your_url".

    Jeet, once again I got ahead of myself. Your suggestion re the direct didn't work but I need to get
    the payment program to work first. It doesn't. As I posted, I pay the rent via a short form, code here:
    <!DOCTYPE html><html lang="en">

    You cannot echo anything before "header" code.
    Instead of that header code, try this:

    <?php
    $url="https://dptv.in/rentreceipt.php?rentdue={$rentdue}&unit={$unit}";
    echo '<script type="text/javascript">
    window.location="'.$url.'";
    </script>
    ';
    ?>


    Your code has so many other problems. No security checks, no variable cleaning, nothing is there...
    And you are mixing PHP inside HTML, making things even more confusing.

    Good freaking gravy, when did we land in 1997?

    Seriously, just throw ALL of that away and start over with markup from THIS century.

    And the same can be said for the PHP. STOP slopping variables into your query strings. It's called PREPARE/EXECUTE, use it! Likewise ditch all the garbage "variables for nothing".

    As to the redirect, WHY? Why not just show the result? But if you insist, add this inside the document <head>

    <meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="0; URL=https://dptv.in/rentreceipt.php?rentdue={$rentdue}&unit={$unit}">
    Code (markup):
    Remembering that you should be doing all your logic and processing BEFORE you even THINK about outputting a damned thing, in which case you could probably just use header()

    Though the 20+ year out of date practices in the PHP likely will bite you on that as much as your 25 year out of date markup.

    My code is localhost in property/rentreceipt.php. Should the code be:
    URL=https://dptv.in/property/rentreceipt.php?tenant={$tenant}&rentdue={$rentdue}&unit={$unit}">

    Yes, URL should be like that, and replace "dptv.in" with "localhost"
    That dptv.in is an example domain. Use your own domain.
    Also note, on localhost "https" will not work most likely. You will get page not found error or something like that.
    So on localhost, use "http" instead of "https"
    On website use "https"

    I cannot show example code here, cause forum is not allowing me to post a localhost url...
    Will go something like this:

    if( $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] == 'localhost' ){
    $url= "http : //localhost/property/rentreciept.php?token={$token}&rentpaid={$rentpaid}";
    }else{
    $url= "https://dptv.in/property/rentreciept.php?token={$token}&rentpaid={$rentpaid}";
    }

    In the first URL, remove the white spaces.
