Can’t fix whitespace problem in login.php

  • Hello,
    I read previous posts on how to fix the login header error, but I’m not sure where I need to delete whitespace. I’ve gone to the lines mentioned in the file but there are no obvious spaces to me. I am still new to all this, so please advise!
    Why does this stuff change to begin with? Shouldn’t it be fine after I download it?
    BTW, that page linked to in earlier messages does not work. Firefox says the domain could not be found.
    This one mentions the whitespace problem:

    Thank you,

  • The page you’ve linked says clearly WHERE do you have to delete the whitespace…

    Shana: I assume you mean ‘wp-config.php’ ?
    Download that file
    The last line is this
    ?>
    Place your cursor between the ? and the >
    Now press and hold your DELETE key for a few seconds.
    Then type >
    And then save without pressing any other key at all.
    And if it’s not wp-config.php, the procedure is the same for ant other php file.

    Ah, I misunderstood the error and the solution. I thought the error was supposed to be in the specific lines mentioned as opposed to any php tags. I believe a previous post I read mentioned that the specific lines had to be fixed; there were no tags anywhere near the lines mentioned, so I was confused. Also, the error mentioned both config and login, but it looked to me like the error was in login, my bad.
    So to all you newbies searching out there, I have done this so you don’t have to 🙂
    Shana
