Hi,

I want to send form elements to MySQL db and my inbox too. I have this script:
********************************************

<?
$usr = "username";
$pwd = "password";
$db = "dbname";
$host = "localhost";
$cid = mysql_connect($host,$usr,$pwd);
if (!$cid) { echo("ERROR: " . mysql_error() . "\n"); }
if ($REQUEST_METHOD=="POST") {
$SQL = " INSERT INTO orders ";
$SQL = $SQL . " (id, colour, colour2, package, delday, delmonth, delyear, deltime, card, comments, fname, sname, address, zip, city, directions, phone, pay, cctype, cc1, cc2, cc3, cc4, ccexpmonth, ccexpyear, cvv2, payfname, paysname, payaddress, payphone,  email, more) VALUES ";
$SQL = $SQL . " ('$first', '$colour', '$colour2', '$package', '$delday', '$delmonth', '$delyear', '$deltime', '$card', '$comments', '$fname', '$sname', '$address', '$zip', '$city', '$directions', '$phone', '$pay', '$cctype', '$cc1', '$cc2', '$cc3', '$cc4', '$ccexpmonth', '$ccexpyear', '$cvv2', '$payfname', '$paysname', '$payaddress', '$payphone', '$email', '$more') ";
$result = mysql_db_query($db,"$SQL",$cid);
if (!$result) { echo("ERROR: " . mysql_error() . "\n$SQL\n"); }
}
mysql_close($cid);
?>

<?
  $from = "Mysite.com <>";

  $message .= $package;
  $message .= $colour;

  mail( "admin@mydomain.com", "order", $message, "From: $from");
  header( "Location: thanks.php" );
?>

*******************************************

...but I take this error:

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/public_html/order/process.php:3) in /home/public_html/order/process.php


Can anybody help, please? Where is the problem?

This error is caused by trying to send output to the browser(headers) more than once in a script. In your case you are calling the header() function after some form of output has already been sent to the browser. Is this the entire script?

Note:  even if there is no specific HTML content echoed or printed out to the browser in this script, a whitespace will cause this error.

For example:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

<?
    // code here, notice space between top of page and start of php
?>
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Would cause an error, while this would not:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
<?
    // code here, notice space between top of page and start of php
?>
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Notice the skipped line in the first example.

Note 2: skipped lines WITHIN <? ?> tags will not cause this error.  The following is valid:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
<?



    // code here, notice space between top of page and start of php



?>
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
