I checked the following link,
zend header already send problem

I removed white spaces and gave close tag in all files, But still i am getting same error.

How to fix this error ?

Following shows EmployeeController.php:

class EmployeeController extends Zend_Controller_Action
    public function init()

    public function indexAction()

      $form = new Default_Form_Empdetails();
       $this->view->form = $form;
        $request = $this->getRequest();
          $formData = $request->getPost();
        if ($request->isPost()) {
            if ($form->isValid($request->getPost())) {  
                $empName = $form->getValue('empName');
                $empAddress = $form->getValue('empAddress');
                $emp = new Default_Model_DBTable_Employee();
                $emp->addAlbum($empName, $empAddress);
            } else {


Kindly help me

Best Solution

It may be because of extra white spaces after php closing tag (?>) in some file.

Also read this Post:

PHP development: why redirects don't work (headers already sent)

  • Any HTML output, including the DOCTYPE declaration or any HTML tag, including the head of the page
  • Extra whitespace before the opening PHP tag of the page, or outside the PHP tags of an include file
  • Using print() or echo before calling header() or session_start()
  • Using virtual() to include files
  • Using the byte-order mark (BOM) at the beginning of a page
