Why session_start is giving warning

Postby Vidyadhar » Sat Aug 24, 2013 4:18 am

I had built my website in php, earlier on Windows platform and amply used session_start function. Later I shifted to Linux hosting and realized that each session_start is displaying a warning that headers already sent etc. Now I searched google and came to know that this problem comes when BOM or any other char has been sent prior to session_start. But BOM is inevitable in my case as it is a multilingual website. Now i came to know that changing php5.ini and setting some option may help avoid the problem but since this is a shared hosting, i had to search for how to set my own php.ini, i found too, but unfortunately php.ini options are also not taking effect (this is checked by using phpinfo function). Can somebody please help rescue the situation? Thanks for reading this.

1).check if you have a white space before <?php

2).please read about ob_start() and if found useful, then try to use it at the top of the page
