Is this the index file or another file? Chance are your 'Header' is being sent and it's the index page where the error is...

Yupyup...  the header is firing and redirecting to index.php, which contains a syntax error.  Post the first 15 lines of index.php, and we can isolate the problem for you.

Maybe it is just my browser (or maybe my eyes) but it seems like you are using slanted quotes instead of a single quote (aka apostrophe).  PHP will work with double quotes or single quotes (') but the slanted quotes (at times not even matching) should cause an error.  They seem to be in both pages.

If those are actually backtick characters (`) then that causes PHP to try to execute the contents in a shell.
