Error trying to use sessions

Postby greg » Fri Jan 10, 2003 6:34 am

I copied code (an entire .php file) directly from an online tutorial and received the following error message:

"Warning: Cannot send session cookie - headers already sent by (output started ... on line 14"

Line 14 is simply "session_start();"

The php faq says "... headers can only be sent before all other content, check if your script is sending headers after having already sent content." And, I fix this how?

I have gotten the same or similar messages everytime I have tried to use sessions, even when using code straight from the PHP site.

Session_start() has to be placed above any HTML tags.

it would be pest to do it like:
<?php
session_start();


then go from their.. It's also better to write <?php then just <? anyways.. you prolly have it already figured out if this post is old:)
