Description: This error happens when your PHP scripts are sending some content and then trying to modify the HTTP headers. Generally happens when the site is compromised by a script injection or due to an hosting error. Either way, it should be fixed.

Error example:

Clean up: It needs to be verified what is causing the error (hacked or hosting error). Contact support for help at
