Cannot send session cookie - headers already sent by (url)
Posted 08 September 2006 - 10:35 PM
I am using php 5.1.4, Appache Server 2.2.3 on windows xp(sp2), I am just trying to get a simple session going, I have no complicated stuff, definately no spaces before my <?php declare, definately no spaces after ?>
my snytax is as follows, when I run this I cannot see a value for the variable, my session directory produces a file containing
$_SESSION['views'] = 1;
echo "Pageviews = ". $_SESSION['views'];
Im pretty sure my php.ini settings are correct as I have reinstalled, followed all the tutes
----------------------- session settings ---------------------------------------
session.auto_start - off
session.use_trans_sid - 0
session.use_only_cookies - off
session.use_cookies - on

If any spaces, blank lines, or text is in the file before <?PHP then PHP already sent your headers prior to seeing the session_start() call.
Check out your file.

A somewhat stretching -- posiblity is if you use Smarty or some other templating system,
Smarty has the ability to filter output, and may have added text prior to your <?PHP,
Unfortunately, I've only encountered that error when some text (not just spaces) was output before the session_start().
Depending on your platform, sometimes invisible characters could be 'hiding' out.
You might try the old standby, rebuilding the file from scratch, though you've probably already tried it :-X
Sorry if that doesn't help.

I've kept my templating system (Smarty) on a very short leash for a long time,
and now that I know it fairly well, I've begun to play with it.
Smarty may not be the latest and greatest, but it's stable, and extensible, and
worst case you can just write straight php, and it doesn't get offended
