session error

Postby nainil » Tue Apr 01, 2003 10:42 am

Hi everybody,

Please, could you help me to find out why I'm getting an error message like one below.

Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cookie - headers already sent by (output started at file1.php:2) in InitSession.php on line 2.

It was working fine few days ago.

Thank you,

Best Regards,

something is being sent to the browser before the session cookie is created.

Make sure there are no spaces before the first <?php

Or, take use of this nifty function:

Code: Select all


It prevents the compiler to flush (send it to the user) parsed info directly...
This way it's only sent when the buffer reaches its limit, at the end of the page, or when you command it to... =)
Meaning you can use functions such as session_start() or header() when html-material already has been sent...
