Hi,
Do you know that if we have a blank line in top of code (before <?php) php can't process that code ?

OK.. this's the code sample:
1. First lets write a code like this
-----------------------
<?php
print "bla..bla...";
?>
-----------------------
and of course it will running well

2. Lets add one blank line in the first line
-----------------------

<?php
print "bla..bla...";
?>
-----------------------
And this one will running well too

3. Lets add session feature
-----------------------

<?php
session_start();
print "bla..bla..";
?>
-----------------------
Ops.. we got an error here... !!!

I'm not sure my php version, maybe php4.0.1... i don't know... so i'm sorry if this problem has been fixed in recent version

Best Regards
Jimmi A. Kembaren

The output of *any* content to the browser causes the headers to be sent. After the headers have been sent, functions that send headers (like session_start() or header()) will fail.

some simple rules when writing error reports:

> php can't process that code ?
always include the error message!

> I'm not sure my php version, maybe php4.0.1
you know about http://php.net/phpinfo ?
