Can anyone teach me how i can redirect my page for one page to another page automatically.

My senario is like this, I have a login page in which when the user login I will set the cookie and after 5 to 10 minutes my cookie will expire. And when the cookie expire I will redirect the page to an error page to tell the user that he or she need to login again. And from the error page I want it to automatically redirect itself to the login page so that the user can login again.

So how can i redirect my page from the error page to the login page automatically after a few second. Can anyone teach me. Thanks.
Thanks for the help & support given by all.

i would make an html meta tag to automatically refresh the page after x amount of minutes

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="600">

that would make it refresh after 10 minutes (600 seconds) then in my script i would check to see if the cookie is expired and if so, do a header to the new page

//if cookie expired {
  header ("location: blah.php");

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
