Sometimes, very randomly, I get this viewing the page:

Warning: session_start(): The session id contains invalid characters, valid characters are only a-z, A-Z and 0-9 in /home2/newbobbo/public_html/index.php on line 2

Warning: session_start(): Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent (output started at /home2/newbobbo/public_html/index.php:2) in /home2/newbobbo/public_html/index.php on line 2

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home2/newbobbo/public_html/index.php:2) in /home2/newbobbo/public_html/index.php on line 3

And with a refresh its gone. Why would that even appear? Its not there 99% of the time. The content isn't changing on the page i'm on, simply a refresh....?

this Google search [google.com] shows a bunch of people have this problem

most of the ones I checked showed PHPSESSID= in the url, my guess a blank session, which is invalid. If I cut it out of the url then it worked.

So you are sending a blank session somehow, when you refresh it starts a new one for you maybe. Maybe youre session is being dropped somewhere, any other info or ideas?

Well your idea could be right, but i'm thinking not in one reason. I am logged in with the information in sessions, so if after sending the blank session and recieving a new one, I would have been logged out which I wasn't. (I was in a restricted area where being logged in and permissions count, so thats how I know).

Its just weird, i'll get it every couple of days or something meh.
