Maybe something in the include files is creating an output to the screen, this means that you cannot set cookies / edit sessions when this happens.

try this - it seems the includes are unecessary anyway as there are no reference to these in the code.

<?php
      session_start();

// DELETE OLD COOKIES

      if (isset($_COOKIE['KraCookieName']) && isset($_COOKIE['KraCookiePass']))
            {
            setcookie ("KraCookieName", "", time() - 60*60*24*30, "/");
            setcookie ("KraCookiePass", "", time() - 60*60*24*30, "/");
            }

      unset($_SESSION['username']);
      unset($_SESSION['password']);

// kill session variables

      $_SESSION = array(); // reset session array
      session_destroy();   // destroy session.

      if ($logged_in == 0)
            {
            die('You are not logged in so you cannot log out.');
            }

      echo "<h1>Logged Out</h1>\n";
      echo "You have successfully <b>logged out</b>. Back to <a href=\"main.php\">main</a>";
?>

The error is caused by a couple of extra line feeds at the end of your login.php script. When you include login.php from main.php, the line feeds are being output to the browser and shutting off any further header info (like cookies and sessions). It's an easy mistake.

To fix...open login.php with your text editor and delete everything after the last closing php tag "?>", save, repost, and you will not get the modify header warning. If you need help beyond that, please post.

Yeah, you cannot edit the headers after you display the contents of the page

I agree, but I don't fully understand why you want the login-script included in the logout script...?

I't should be safe to remove the include files in logout.php.

<?php

if ($logged_in == 0) {
      die('You are not logged in so you cannot log out.');
}

unset($_SESSION['username']);
unset($_SESSION['password']);
// kill session variables
$_SESSION = array(); // reset session array
session_destroy();   // destroy session.

   echo "<h1>Logged Out</h1>\n";
   echo "You have successfully <b>logged out</b>. Back to <a href=\"main.php\">main</a>";

?>
