Thread: Problems using PHP to create XML

    I'm using a PHP script that returns data in an XML structure. So rather than calling myXML.load() on an XML file, I'm calling it on a PHP script. For example:


    This works fine when I'm running it locally, but when I publish the .swf file to the web, all of a sudden it doesn't work. I tried debugging, and I think it's never getting to my myXML.onload call.

    Any ideas as to why this is the case would be MAJORLY helpful!

    Off the top of my head, I seem to remember something about the script/swf file needing to be in the same directory on the server....??

    Not sure, but it's easy enough to give it a shot -

    oh yeah!

    HollowPlanet, you da man!

    My script and swf file WERE in the same directory, but apparently giving the absolute path to the script isn't the same as giving it a relative path.

    XML.load("file.php") ---------------------- works
    XML.load("http://www.bla.com/file.php")---- doesn't even if the script and swf are both at http://www.bla.com

    Thanks man.
