The usual cause for this warning is that some of your PHP files have a space 
or a new line either before the first "<?php" marker, or after the closing 

The "<?php" marker should be the very first thing in your *.php files. Make 
sure your text editor saves the php file in the encoding "UTF-8 without Byte 
order mask (BOM)".

The "?>" is not required when the file contains only PHP code not mixed with 
HTML and in this case it is recommended to remove it (this way are all pmwiki 

This warning may mean that PmWiki is unable to send a cookie, in which case 
you will be unable to stay logged in.

Is this version 2.2.23 or 2.2.19?? If 2.2.19 still works, we should search the 
error in PmWiki, otherwise it is probably a server problem.

If the Warning problem above is fixed but it still doesn't work, and if you 
haven't tested the code that I suggested for a custom session directory, you 
can test it now.
