PHP session start causes runtime error in IE 7

Hi
I have a page that starts with
<?php
session_start();
?>

All works fine in Chrome and Mozilla but in IE7 I get a 'runtime error occurred on line 2. Object not supported. I'm developing it on Xampp locally if that's relevant.

Any ideas please? (I can post more code if it's not a common issue).

Thank you

A PHP runtime error or config issue shouldn't be browser dependent... Can you post more code, what else is going out to the browser, if anything? Try echoing something after session_start() and see if it's outputted properly in Chrome or FF.

I disabled script debugging in Internet Explorer which has solved the issue for me. But I'm still unsure why the error came up in the first place. And does anyone know if debugging will be 'off' in the general public versions of IE7?

This is not a problem with your PHP code (which I can't fully test because I don't have that included file). It's a problem with your Javascript. As said, a server side error can't be browser dependent. So it's got to be client side, aka the javascript.

IE can be a bugger with subtle JS errors, run all JS through JSLint to see if it gives you any problems to fix... I'm not a JS expert so can't really offer much advice on that, but it's definatley not a problem with your PHP.

Ps, why do you end PHP and restart it on lines 3/4 and 4/5? There's no need. All you're doing there is starting to send content to the browser, that new line has to be sent, along with headers, meaning you can't modify them beyond that point... Keep it all in PHP until you need to send out content. :)

Thanks for that advice. I'll check the Jquery and report back.
as for
why do you end PHP and restart it on lines 3/4 and 4/5?
Because I tend to have to work it all out as I go along and didn't do any basic training - Costs me hours, good job I'm stubborn. Thanks, I'll correct that though.

Hi
You were dead right. It was one of the Js files. I've tidied up the PHP too.
Thanks again for your help.
