check any require() or include() directives before sending a cookie in your text.
I bet that some of the included files outputs some blank characters.

I mean, if you make


and file config.inc is like that:
-- end of file --
then these spaces are sent before your SetCookie command - so PHP gives an error.

Hi padmamvs,

The cookie code must be before any code you put ei php or html.
