Changelog

Version Description
5.5.7 This function became available in the CLI server.
5.4.0 This function became available under FastCGI. Previously, it was supported only when PHP was installed as an Apache module.
4.3.3

As of PHP 4.3.3 you can use this function with the NSAPI server module in Netscape/iPlanet/SunONE webservers, too.

4.3.0 Became an alias for apache_request_headers(). Essentially, it was renamed. This is because this function only works with Apache.

it could be useful if you using nginx instead of apache

<?php
if (!function_exists('getallheaders'))
{
    function
getallheaders()
    {
          
$headers = '';
       foreach (
$_SERVER as $name => $value)
       {
           if (
substr($name, 0, 5) == 'HTTP_')
           {
              
$headers[str_replace(' ', '-', ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', substr($name, 5)))))] = $value;
           }
       }
       return
$headers;
    }
}
?>

dont forget to add the content_type and content_lenght if your are uploading file:

<?php
 
function emu_getallheaders() {
        foreach (
$_SERVER as $name => $value)
       {
           if (
substr($name, 0, 5) == 'HTTP_')
           {
              
$name = str_replace(' ', '-', ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', substr($name, 5)))));
              
$headers[$name] = $value;
           } else if (
$name == "CONTENT_TYPE") {
              
$headers["Content-Type"] = $value;
           } else if (
$name == "CONTENT_LENGTH") {
              
$headers["Content-Length"] = $value;
           }
       }
       return
$headers;
    }
?>

Beware that RFC2616 (HTTP/1.1) defines header fields as case-insensitive entities. Therefore, array keys of getallheaders() should be converted first to lower- or uppercase and processed such.
