Tried wamp 5 and am getting


Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cookie - headers already sent by (output started at c:\wamp\www\sitemap.php:2) in c:\wamp\www\mulberry\functions\functions.php on line 59


Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent (output started at c:\wamp\www\sitemap.php:2) in c:\wamp\www\mulberry\functions\functions.php on line 59


As I said earlier this all works on my web host. Just wondering if anyone has an idea what I can do.

The "headers already sent" error usually means that something was sent to display in the browser before you used session_start(). In most cases, this is because of an empty space before the opening <?php tag.


I would check the top of your sitemap.php file -- make sure the first thing in the file is the <?php tag.

Thanks for looking, below is the code. As I said it works fine on my web server, just errors on wamp. Other files are the same Wondered if it was an Apache problem. Thanks



require_once 'mulberry/functions/functions.php';

$shopping_cart = get_shopping_cart();


<?php $thisPage="sitemap"; ?>

The following is the code starting on line 59.



function get_xml_sitemap()

{return new SimpleXMLelement(file_get_contents(STORE_XML_SITEMAP_FILE));}


This code is on line 4 Thanks


define('STORE_XML_SITEMAP_FILE' , ($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] .'/sitemap.xml'));

Any idea why your session_start() is semi-randomly in the middle of that file? I'd suggest moving it either to the beginning of sitemap.php (but you'll need to update all of your files that use the session to include the session_start at the beginning of the file):


require_once 'mulberry/functions/functions.php';


Or make it the first line within the functions.php file:



// rest of code here...

Ah, right. OK. Two things: You need to add session_start() to the beginning of your functions.php file like I showed you above.


Secondly, you need to change any instances of


<?= $variable or function; ?>



<?php echo $variable or function; ?>


In the most recent versions of PHP, the short syntax, "<?= ?>" which the parser used to translate into "<?php echo ?>" has been depreciated, and you should no longer use it. The video may have shown the short syntax, but it was recorded before this change with PHP occurred.
