1 bootstrap.inc backdrop_add_http_header($name, $value, $append = FALSE)

Sets an HTTP response header for the current page.

Note: When sending a Content-Type header, always include a 'charset' type, too. This is necessary to avoid security bugs (e.g. UTF-7 XSS).

Parameters

$name: The HTTP header name, or the special 'Status' header name.

$value: The HTTP header value; if equal to FALSE, the specified header is unset. If $name is 'Status', this is expected to be a status code followed by a reason phrase, e.g. "404 Not Found".

$append: Whether to append the value to an existing header or to replace it.
