headers already sent error – no wp-admin access

  • Installation seemed to go perfectly. The forum was completely operable and Test Users registering through bbpress were created on the WP side. Unfortunately, I received errors trying to log into WP backend. Calling “” resulted in a blank page with:

    “Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/user/public_html/sitefolder/wp-config.php:80) in /home/user/public_html/sitefolder/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 850″

    In order to finally get back into my admin panel

    I deleted all BB_tables from db – didn’t work.

    Deleted all bbpress files – didn’t work.

    Refreshed wp-includes folder and root wp files – worked.

    Now I’m back to a WP site with no forum tables or software and will try again after work.

    Any ideas what’s going on here?

    What did line 80 of wp-config.php look like, and how about the line just before that? Also, what version of WordPress so someone can check their wp-config.php and see what that might be.

    Both were downloaded yesterday, so the version would be… most current.

    Just moved the site from a WPMU to stand-alone. All functioning perfectly after editing and restoring from WPMU SQL before going on to add the bbpress. I did get the bbpress working perfectly before deciding to change from to so maybe there was residual info left from the first install, even though I dumped all tables and bbpress wares.

    I didn’t consider restoring/refreshing WP before re-installing the bbpress. This may be where the issue occurred. I will refresh all WP files then try again.

    I looked at my wp-config but lines aren’t numbered so I’ll have to count to 80, I’m on lunch break… thanks for the reply. I will look into detailed info when I get home tonight. I didn’t know that bbpress would alter the wp php files… except to create .htaccess and bb_config

    thanks again. and no worries… I’m sure a freshy will fix it… cause it’s got to be on my end, not the software.

    btw: when i added the define cookies text from the bb configuration/integration settings page to my wp-config.php, the text I added showed at the top of my site… (an error)

    solved by refreshing wp files.
