If you've got anything before the opening PHP delimiter, that would definitely do it. And I do mean *anything* -- blank line, space, doesn't matter. The <? opening delimiter would also do it if PHP not configured to allow the short open tag. Change it to <?php and make sure there's absolutely nothing in that file before it. The fact that the error's shown as being in Line 2 suggests that might be the case. Also make sure there's no leading whitespace before the opening PHP delimiter in the include file as well.

      $query = "SELECT admin_id from auc_admin where usernm='$ausername' and passwd='$apassword'" ;

P.S. Tell me you're *not* storing passwords in the clear, please...

Zontar's suggestion of not putting "ANYTHING" in front of the <?PHP worked perfectly for me!
