if i have a page, say thispage.php and wants to check where does the previous page comes from, how can i do it???

any php functions?

echo "$HTTP_REFERER<br>";

Would print out the last page accessed

Or $_SERVER["HTTP_REFERER"] (looks cooler :p)

thanks...but i even tried printing as

print_r($_SERVER); to print all the para in $_SERVER[..] but still I cannot find HTTP_REFERER....

or if I echo "$_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER']";

it did not give me anyresult

Did you try accessing the page from a different url? Also, some firewalls, browsers etc will prevent the referrer being shown/recorded.
