I'm getting an error when trying to run my website on our test server. Basically the site works fine for the most part but I'm getting this error in my logs:

[23-Feb-2010 03:29:58] Warning at [edit]/sapphire/core/control/Director.php line 120: Undefined variable: _SESSION (http://[edit]/)

I believe this error is also what's preventing log ins from working. I've done a check on my encoding:

find ./ -exec file -i {} \;

and all of my files (mysite/* and themes/*) are us-ascii

Does anyone know this problem?

Turns out this was an extra space after one of my php closing tags ?>. Found this by looking into the "Redirecting to..." issue I was also noticing.

I think there's a job for someone to go through the core and remove all the ?> end tags. These little guys cause a lot of problems!
