Using PHP Replace SPACES in URLS with %20

I'm looking to replace all instances of spaces in urls with %20. How would I do that with regex?

Thank you!

No need for a regex here, if you just want to replace a piece of string by another: using str_replace() should be more than enough :

$new = str_replace(' ', '%20', $your_string);

But, if you want a bit more than that, and you probably do, if you are working with URLs, you should take a look at the urlencode() function.
