HELP: Blank Spaces at the End of PHP files in WP-Admin (2 posts)

    Hey there friends.

    After a long series of customizations, I finally decided that I could switch my site over from it's original domain/wordpress to the domain its self. After following the codex instructions, backing up my files, and so on, I did the switch and the site looks fine, but is without two important plugins. Because of this, I tried to go to mydomain/wp-admin, and I got

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/content/t/e/a/teamwin/html/wp-admin/includes/import.php:175) in /home/content/t/e/a/teamwin/html/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 1699

    I did some searching around and realized that there were 2 blank spaces added to the bottom of /home/content/t/e/a/teamwin/html/wp-admin/includes/import, so it wasn't working. I took out these blank spaces, and another, similar warning came up, just with another file mentioned in place of the file i adjusted.

    I did the same to this file and yet another came up. I now have taken two blank spaces out of the bottom of at least 20 php files.

    Does anyone know why this happened or how I can fix it more quickly? As of right now, I still can't access my-admin, which doesn't exactly work well for maintaining a site.

    I don't think there's any quick fix if you can't access the Admin area (there's a plugin out there that some people have used successfully to clean out unwanted whitespace in files). It's just a case of slogging through and cleaning out the files.


    As to how it happened - that's difficult to say.
