    Problem with contact form

    Hello,
    I'm devolping a web in Flash.
    But I'm having problem.
    When I put cntrl+enter in flash and I fill the data it works, and send the mail.
    But when i upload it to my webserver, it doesn't send anything.
    The code I'm using in Flash is:
    stop();

    import flash.events.*;
    import flash.net.URLLoader;
    import flash.net.URLLoaderDataFormat;
    import flash.net.URLRequest;
    // ----------------------------------------------------------------
    var variables:URLVariables = new URLVariables();
    // Be sure to change this URL to the PHP parse file on your site server
    var varSend:URLRequest = new URLRequest("MYWEBSITE/contact_parse.php");
    var varLoader:URLLoader = new URLLoader;
    varSend.method = URLRequestMethod.POST;
    varSend.data = variables;

    status_txt.text = "";

    submit_btn.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, ValidateAndSend);

    function ValidateAndSend(event:MouseEvent):void{

    //validate form fields
    if(!name_txt.length) {
    status_txt.text = "Por favor introduzca su nombre.";
    } else if(!email_txt.length) {
    status_txt.text = "Por favor introduzca su correo";
    } else if(!validateEmail(email_txt.text)) {
    status_txt.text = "Por favor introduzca un correo valido";
    } else if(!subject_txt.length) {
    status_txt.text = "Por favor introduzca el asunto";
    } else if(!msg_txt.length) {
    status_txt.text = "Por favor introduzca su mensaje";

    } else {

    status_txt.text = "Gracias " + name_txt.text + ", su mensaje se ha enviado.";

    variables.userName = name_txt.text;
    variables.userEmail = email_txt.text;
    variables.userSubject = subject_txt.text;
    variables.userMsg = msg_txt.text;

    varLoader.load(varSend);

    gotoAndStop(2);

    }
    }

    function validateEmail(str:String):Boolean {
    var pattern:RegExp = /(\w|[_.\-])+((\w|-)+\.)+\w{2,4}+/;
    var result:Object = pattern.exec(str);
    if(result == null) {
    return false;
    }
    return true;
    }

    The PHP:
    <?php
    /*
    --- Created By Adam @ www.developphp.com ---
    --- For help or script expansion join our forums there ---
    --- Use this code as your own any way you like ---
    */
    // Create local PHP variables from the info the user gave in the Flash form
    $senderName = $_POST['userName'];
    $senderEmail = $_POST['userEmail'];
    $senderMessage = $_POST['userMsg'];
    $senderSubject = $_POST['userSubject'];

    // Strip slashes on the Local variables
    $senderName = stripslashes($senderName);
    $senderEmail = stripslashes($senderEmail);
    $senderMessage = stripslashes($senderMessage);
    $senderSubject = stripslashes($senderSubject);

    //!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! change this to your email !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    $to = "myEMAIL";
    // Place sender Email address here
    $from = "$senderEmail ";
    $subject = "$senderSubject";
    //Begin HTML Email Message
    $message = <<<EOF
    <html>
    <body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
    <b>Nombre</b> = $senderName<br /><br />
    <b>Correo</b> = <a href="mailto:$senderEmail">$senderEmail</a><br /><br />
    <b>Mensaje</b> = $senderMessage<br />
    </body>
    </html>
    EOF;
    //end of message
    $headers = "From: $from\r\n";
    $headers .= "Content-type: text/html\r\n";
    $to = "$to";

    mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);

    exit();
    ?>

    Hope you can help me out, I'm kind of out of ideas and desperate.
    THanks!
    Cheers!

    Do you have the flash debugger installed in your browser? If so what errors does it report when you try to send the mail? Are you callining the PHP file from a diffrent domain than the one your .swf lives in?

    Do you have the flash debugger installed in your browser? No, is it necesary? Do you recomend me to, I'm just having that problem.
    If so what errors does it report when you try to send the mail?
    Are you callining the PHP file from a diffrent domain than the one your .swf lives in? No. The strange thing is that when I run the file from Flash it sends the mail, but when I do it from a webserver it doesn't (also, for example if I publish it with cntrl+enter it sends, but if I put F12 it doesn't)
    THanks!

    you need a cross domain policy file. there plenty of examples on google and its not real hard to setup but will require you to do some reading.

    Thanks, mate.
    I appreciate your help. It work out in a trial server I had, I put:

    <?xml version="1.0"?>

    <!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM "http://www.adobe.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd">

    <cross-domain-policy>

    <allow-access-from domain="*.site.com" secure="false" />

    <allow-access-from domain="word.abcfamily.com" secure="false" />
    <allow-access-from domain="*.site.com/*" secure="false" />

    <allow-access-from domain="word.abcfamily.com/*" secure="false" />

    </cross-domain-policy>

    "word" was substituted by the subdomain.
    the problem is that once I put it in the real server, it didn't work. Same problem.
    Don't know what to do.
    I tried plenty of stuff, for example
    <allow-access-from domain="*" secure="false" />
    <allow-access-from domain="*"/>
    <allow-access-from domain="domain.com" secure="false" />
    etc,etc,etc...

    I will really appreciate your help.
    Thanks!!

    You probably just need to use a relative URL rather than
    var varSend:URLRequest = new URLRequest("MYWEBSITE/contact_parse.php");

    var varSend:URLRequest = new URLRequest("contact_parse.php");

    Oh and if you don't want your site to end up being used to send out spam I suggest you not use this PHP code... It is very bad!

    Please read this:

    Guys, this is kind of urgent, and I will really appreciate your help:
    The site is currently online, but their server don't have the port 25 open (I think), so I will reedirect the contact form to my site until they solve that problem. The problem is that when I do that, I found the same original problem:

    Error #2044: Unhandled securityError:. text=Error #2048: Security sandbox violation: http://www.site.com/file.swf cannot load data from http://subdomain.mydomain.com/file.php
    at file_fla::contact_30/frame1()

    Why is that happening?!?!?!
    THANKS!

    well you don't have http://www............you just have http://subdomain.......so maybe you aren't pointing at the correct domain since u aren't using www......do you have any control over the DNS for your domain?

    here is a cross domain policy file known to work by me Please change the URLs I don't care if you use them really it would just give me access to your domain

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM"http://www.adobe.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd">
    <cross-domain-policy>
    <site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies="all"/>
    <allow-access-from domain="calmchess.com" />
    <allow-access-from domain="www.calmchess.com" />
    </cross-domain-policy>

    PS port 21 and 25 should be open by your webhost especially if they are allowing PHP they don't generally close mail services or database services and if you call them they will gladly open up whatever you want .......I use Flash media server and They have been known to install it and open port 1935 and 1111 ...Also are you using PHP pear to send mail or the actual mail settings within php.ini because usually you have to have your own mail server in order to use php.ini settings and even then its tricky. I don't remember all the details for the php.ini method but just saying this for your information.

    While I'm at it I'll check to see if Security context is required on the loader within flash I can't remember off the top of my head.......I mentioned this before did you ever look up SECURITY in the live docs? Sometimes you have to tell the loader that the crossdomain policy file is out there not usually though.

    I just looked and I don't need security Context on my loaders that are just calling a PHP file or just loading text or XML I think if I remember correctly its more for loaders that load Images. Look it up in the livedocs though Its been months since I delt with it.
