I keep getting that warning in lines 479, 485 and 486, here is the code of that file at those lines of the page_header.php:

// Work around for "current" Apache 2 + PHP module which seems to not
// cope with private cache control setting
if (!empty($HTTP_SERVER_VARS['SERVER_SOFTWARE']) && strstr($HTTP_SERVER_VARS['SERVER_SOFTWARE'], 'Apache/2'))
{
      header ('Cache-Control: no-cache, pre-check=0, post-check=0'); //line 479
}
else
{
      header ('Cache-Control: private, pre-check=0, post-check=0, max-age=0');
}
header ('Expires: 0');//line 485
header ('Pragma: no-cache'); //line 486

$template->pparse('overall_header');

?>

Code of the mysql4.php:

            if ( $query_id )
            {
                  unset($this->row[$query_id]);
                  unset($this->rowset[$query_id]);
                  mysql_free_result($query_id); //line 317

                  return true;
            }

What am I doing wrong?

There is nothing wrong with your line 479, it is simply because your error messages for your mysql_free_result(): function has been written to the browser, therefore the header() function cannot execute properly.

Solving the mysql_free_result(): error message will also solve your other errors!

Hope this helps.

mysql_free_result($query_id); is not a resource.

you should first check if its a resource and then use mysql_free_result. mysql_query() will only return a resource on SELECT, SHOW, EXPLAIN and DESCRIBE queries.

use this code to check.
 if ( $query_id )
            {
                  unset($this->row[$query_id]);
                  unset($this->rowset[$query_id]);
				  if(is_resource($query_id)) {
                     
					 mysql_free_result($query_id); 
				  
				  }
                  return true;
            }

The problem is with line 317, make sure that you are connected to the database before you can run a query.
