    resolved [RESOLVED] Error When Redirecting a Page

    Hi,
    I am New in PHP and developing a login system. I want that if user provide correct info, the page redirects to welcome.php , but its giving an error "Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at C:\xampp\htdocs\MyWork\LoginDemo.php:18) in C:\xampp\htdocs\MyWork\LoginDemo.php on line 33"
    my code is as under
    Code:
     if ($count >= 1) {
            echo "My User Name : " . $username . "<br/>";
            echo "My password  : " . $password;
            header('Location: WelcomePage.php'); /* Redirect browser */
        } else {
            echo "Invalid User";
        }
    If I write the same code "header('Location: WelcomePage.php'); /* Redirect browser */" in a blank PHP file, it works

            echo "Invalid User";
        }
    Notice what I highlighted in red, above. If you still don't get it, see the online manual page for header(), in particular the 2nd paragraph under "Description".

    Thanks NogDog,
    There were few HTML commands like <br> , <hr> etc before HEADER, deleted all. Now its working fine.
