Version Description
4.3.3

Note:

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

4.3.0 Prior to PHP 4.3.0, apache_request_headers() was called getallheaders(). After PHP 4.3.0, getallheaders() is an alias for apache_request_headers().

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:

Accept: */*
Accept-Language: en-us
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0
Host: www.example.com
Connection: Keep-Alive

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.
