Support » Installing WordPress » headers already sent

  • website – 74.53.28.114/~wizscom
    gives error:
    
    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/wizscom/public_html/wp-config.php:1) in /home/wizscom/public_html/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 329

    wp-config.php has no extra spaces before or after the < or > for php
    when looking at pluggable.php though, (and all the other files i randomly checked in wp-includes) with notepad the code is all garbled up.
    i just downloaded wordpress today from wordpress.org
    is something corrupt with the archive?
    thanks

  • In some cases, I’ve found notepad does weird things. Try WordPad (although WordPad is not at all recommended, it does make the code easier to read in the meantime.

    I used notepad++ to open my wp-config.php and found that the original from the wordpress archive is in ansi format. after pulling up the file in notepad and saving it, notepad changes it to utf-8 format. apparantly this is what was causing the problem.
    I pulled up wp-config-sample.php in notepad++, edited it, saved as wp-config.php and uploaded that and my site does not give the headers already sent error.

    I’m receiving the same error, and I made my edits using Dreamweaver. Are there any other suggests as to what the problem could be?

    My full error reads:

    rr
    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/xxxxx/public_html/mk/wp-config.php:1) in /home/xxxxx/public_html/mk/wp-includes/functions.php on line 1348

    And if I try to ignore the error and continue with the installation, eventually, I’ll get a page full of errors and the login will not work.

    You have extra characters (the rr) in wp-config.php file. If you see nothing out-of-the-ordinary, it could be an encoding issue, in which case, do what radial did.

    Oh my goodness, I can’t believe I didn’t see those extra characters! Thanks the problem is fixed!

    It doesn’t like the following in “funtions.php” of your applied theme either…

    <?php
    
    Php code
    
    ?>
    <!-- html comment -->
    <?php
    
    Php code
    
    ?>

    It wants you to do this:

    <?php
    
    Php code
    
    /* php comment */
    
    Php code
    
    ?>

    Doesn’t seem to matter *if* you use HTML code, but if it’s only a comment between ?> and <?php it gets pissy…
