    I am having the same problem as the guy here

    except his seems to be resolved.

    A four-digit hex number is displayed right before the header, before the footer, and on each file_get_contents call.

    Any ideas?

    This issue is caused by the so-called BOM (Byte Order Mark), which can be part of the UTF-8 signature.
    Read more about this topic in the W3C FAQ about Unexpected characters or blank lines.
    I removed the BOM using Dreamweaver by deselecting 'Include Unicode Signature (BOM)' under Page Properties > Title/Encoding. Read Dreamweaver Unicode normalizations and Byte Order Mark for more details about Dreamweaver and BOM.
