        200 => 'HTTP/1.1 200 OK',

    Hi, I think you should actually test to see if the SERVER_PROTOCOL is 1.0 or 1.1. I think the code should be like this: function HTTPStatus($num) {     $http_protocol = "HTTP/1.0";     if(isset($_SERVER['SERVER_PROTOCOL']) && stripos($_SERVER['SERVER_PROTOCOL'],"HTTP") >= 0){         $http_protocol = $_SERVER['SERVER_PROTOCOL'];     }     $http = array(         100 => $http_protocol . ' 100 Continue',         101 => $http_protocol . ' 101 Switching Protocols',         200 => $http_protocol . ' 200 OK',         201 => $http_protocol . ' 201 Created',         202 => $http_protocol . ' 202 Accepted',         203 => $http_protocol . ' 203 Non-Authoritative Information',         204 => $http_protocol . ' 204 No Content',         205 => $http_protocol . ' 205 Reset Content',         206 => $http_protocol . ' 206 Partial Content',         300 => $http_protocol . ' 300 Multiple Choices',         301 => $http_protocol . ' 301 Moved Permanently',         302 => $http_protocol . ' 302 Found',         303 => $http_protocol . ' 303 See Other',         304 => $http_protocol . ' 304 Not Modified',         305 => $http_protocol . ' 305 Use Proxy',         307 => $http_protocol . ' 307 Temporary Redirect',         400 => $http_protocol . ' 400 Bad Request',         401 => $http_protocol . ' 401 Unauthorized',         402 => $http_protocol . ' 402 Payment Required',         403 => $http_protocol . ' 403 Forbidden',         404 => $http_protocol . ' 404 Not Found',         405 => $http_protocol . ' 405 Method Not Allowed',         406 => $http_protocol . ' 406 Not Acceptable',         407 => $http_protocol . ' 407 Proxy Authentication Required',         408 => $http_protocol . ' 408 Request Time-out',         409 => $http_protocol . ' 409 Conflict',         410 => $http_protocol . ' 410 Gone',         411 => $http_protocol . ' 411 Length Required',         412 => $http_protocol . ' 412 Precondition Failed',         413 => $http_protocol . ' 413 Request Entity Too Large',         414 => $http_protocol . ' 414 Request-URI Too Large',         415 => $http_protocol . ' 415 Unsupported Media Type',         416 => $http_protocol . ' 416 Requested Range Not Satisfiable',         417 => $http_protocol . ' 417 Expectation Failed',         500 => $http_protocol . ' 500 Internal Server Error',         501 => $http_protocol . ' 501 Not Implemented',         502 => $http_protocol . ' 502 Bad Gateway',         503 => $http_protocol . ' 503 Service Unavailable',         504 => $http_protocol . ' 504 Gateway Time-out',         505 => $http_protocol . ' 505 HTTP Version Not Supported',     );     header($http[$num]);     return         array(             'code' => $num,             'error' => $http[$num],         ); } Cheers, Thusjanthan Kubendranathan
