Your file is stored with utf-8 encoding (incl. a BOM).

What do you mean "Your file is stored with utf-8 encoding (incl. a BOM)"?

What do i have to do to get my program to work?

Thanks in advance

you have to use a plain text editor (not "word" or some such) and remove everything infront of <?php in the first line of your scripts (even any whitespace).
