This line may be wrong?
$dbRet-$this->db->insert('user', $data);

Open in new window


It should be,

$dbRet = $this->db->insert('user', $data);

Open in new window

You may be printing some where on this file registration.php:17

'session_start' must come before any HTML or text output because it sets a cookie which is part of the 'response headers' that are sent before a web page.  Sounds like you may things in the wrong order.
