Hi friends

I am having the problem with some PHP script which wont run properly when uploaded in remote web server though they work nicely in local web server...for example

In my php login script remote server gives an error like cannot modify header information

Do both servers have the same PHP version? You may be using some methods not supported by older versions. Also double check your php.ini files to make sure they are similar where needed

you might be sending a header location redirect, move it a couple lines or re-order the logic and see if that works.

also do a phpinfo() on both servers and compare...

and posting your script might help too!

my local server has php 5.0.4 and remote has got 5.2.6....will that affect?

my script is very basic...
FILE: logincheck.php

if(isset($_POST['username']) && isset($_POST['password']))
if ($username=="xyz" && $password=="xyz")
echo "incorrect username or password";
Some HTML Code
if(isset($_SESSION['login']) && $_SESSION['login']==true)

echo "<a href='../admin/logout.php'>Logout</a>";
echo "<a href='../admin/index.php'>Login</a>";

Don't use session_register();
$_SESSION['login']=true; is enough. Use of session_register() is deprecated.

Other than that it looks fine. GL
