How to throw a 496 statuscode with PHP?

To throw the HTTP status code 496 on a web page, the PHP function http_response_code can be used. The syntax is as follows: http_response_code(496) (PHP 5 >= 5.4.0, PHP 7, PHP 8)

Test the 496 HTTP status code

In order to be able to display the HTTP status code (in this case 496 SSL Certificate Required) and other information on the client side, the development console must be opened with F12. Afterwards you have to navigate to the tab "Network". Now you can open the page, in the network tab you should see the web page (example index.php). This must be selected and then the Herder section must be selected. Here the user will see the following result:

Status code 496 SSL Certificate Required
URL: https://http-statuscode.com/errorCodeExample.php?code=496
Status: 496 SSL Certificate Required
Those: Network
IP address: XX.XX.XX.XX
