Headers already sent issue, Can i just remove the goto lines of code?

I have a form that is deleting a user.  It works fine, but gives me the "Headers already sent" error on the page.  I'd like to not have that show up and get this to work correctly.

I have attached the snippet that I am using after the "DELETE" from DB code.

Open in new window

if ((isset($_POST["MM_insert"])) && ($_POST["MM_insert"] == "infoID")) {
if ((isset($_GET['userID'])) && ($_GET['userID'] != "")) {
  $deleteSQL = sprintf("DELETE FROM tblusers WHERE userID=%s",
                       GetSQLValueString($_GET['userID'], "int"));

  mysql_select_db($database_con_db_local, $con_db_local);
  $Result1 = mysql_query($deleteSQL, $con_db_local) or die(mysql_error());

  $deleteGoTo = "users.php";
  if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) {
    $deleteGoTo .= (strpos($deleteGoTo, '?')) ? "&" : "?";
    $deleteGoTo .= $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];
  }
  header(sprintf("Location: %s", $deleteGoTo));
}
}

There must be absolutely nothing sent to the browser before the header function, even a blank line before the <?php tag will cause the error you cannot echo or do anything else that sends something to the browser before the header.

the file that is being used to process the deletion is inserted using:

<?php include_once (); ?>

since the file its included in is also PHP, could there be a conflict of some kind there?

Ray PaseurCommented:
Yes, there could be a conflict there.  There is probably a newline character of invisible whitespace.  You can add ob_start() as the first PHP statement in the first script and it will probably solve the problem.  It may make your scripts run faster, too!

Extra php brackets cause white space to be added in between them.  The newlines that Ray mentioned are in between the ?> at the end of the first line and <?php on the second line.

<?php include_once (); ?>
<?php include_once (); ?>
