As of PHP 4.3.3 you can use this function with the NSAPI server module in Netscape/iPlanet/SunONE webservers, too.

Examples

Example #1 apache_request_headers() example

<?php
$headers 
apache_request_headers();

foreach (
$headers as $header => $value) {
    echo 
"$header$value <br />\n";
}
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

Notes

Note:

You can also get at the value of the common CGI variables by reading them from the environment, which works whether or not you are using PHP as an Apache module. Use phpinfo() to see a list of all of the available environment variables.
