First off thanks for reading and helping, I appreciate it greatly! Yes, I have scoured forums and help-wiki's (plural) I beleive I have a path-ing issue but after much looking and trials I cannot discover what it is. Here is the scenario.
I have a lovely working SWF (locally) created in Flash CS4 that is implementing SlideShowPro. I've gotten several instances working in the past for several years. Now this one refuses to open on the server. It opens perfectly on my local machine both with a published preview and by opeing the local .html file on my browser. As I've said from all my reading I'm aware that it's likely a path-ing issue but I simply cannot find it ...so I'm stumped.
Any help is wonderful!!!
Here is a link to the non-loading .swf page.
(Happy to send the .fla if it would help.)
you have a cross-domain issue.
Error #2044: Unhandled securityError:. text=Error #2048: Security sandbox violation: http://www.stunningheadshots.com/flash-headshots/headshots3.swf cannot load data from http://www.jonathanstrait.com/ssp_director/images.php?album=8&w=698&h= 697&s=0&q=80&sh=0&tw=160&th=158.5&ts=0&tq=85&tsh=0&pw=54&ph=40&aps=0.
to remedy, use a cross-domain permissions file or use a local php (or other executable) gateway to communicate between your swf and the cross-domain php file.
kglad - Thank you very much for your reply and for finding out what was causing this. I quickly found this site (http://www.crossdomainmaker.com) to make the cross-domain permissions file you suggested. When I went to upload I found there was already an identical one there. Then out of an abundance of caution I placed one pretty much everywhere. Unfortunately it didn't resolve the issue.
Searching some more on this I found the following article at my site's host: http://support.hostgator.com/articles/cpanel/how-to-change-permissions -chmod-of-a-file Using the FTP method I found that the "images.php" file had the following settings which seemed like they didin't need changing:
Not sure why it's coming up with the error you received with both the permissions files and setting I found in place. Obviously I'm missing something.
Thanks again for helping. Any insights on what to do next?
UPDATE- I also just tried uploading the same 'index-test.html' plus CSS files to the other domian's root folder to see if that would help (left out the basic bg image files.) However 'index-test.html' site still doesn't load the .swf even on the same domain.
Now I'm super confused as to why that error showed up.
Thanks again for your help. J
UPDATE - AGAIN! - I stupidly forgot to move the most important file (swf) and upon doing it works when all the files are on the same domain/root folder. THANK YOU. However it seems I can't resolve the permissions issue to get the html back on the correct domain. Any suggestions?
OK I think I should make this a second relpy with all my previous updates going on...
Hooraaaaaaayyyy!!! It worked! I had mistakenly updated the wrong 'index-test' file at first but by placing the .swf on the same root folder/domain as the ssp folder (slideshowpro) and adjusting the 'src:' attribute to an absolute path to it - it worked. I couldn't correct the permissions for whatever reason but this workaround solved it and I couldn't have done it if it weren't for your help finding the issue.
