    Sandbox error on URLRequest to php file

    jo23jo Community Member

      I am running into an issue with passing variables from Actionscript 3 to PHP.

      This is a very basic program just for testing purposes to find out if this will work.


      Here is the Actionscript 3 coding (One button named 'btn_Submit' and one text box named 'txt_User' are on the stage).

      This is a very simple attempt to input text into an 'Input Text Box', upon pressing a submit button, it should pass the text to a php file named 'test.php'.

      The .swf file and the test.php files are both located in the same directory on my webserver (main directory for subdomain 'www.testing.budgetmylife.net')

      For the URLRequest parameter, I have even tried just ("test.php"), without success:


      import flash.events.*

      import flash.net.*;


      var myVariables:URLVariables = new URLVariables();

      var myLoader:URLLoader = new URLLoader();

      var myRequest:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://www.testing.budgetmylife.net/test.php");

      myLoader.dataFormat = URLLoaderDataFormat.VARIABLES;

      myRequest.method = URLRequestMethod.POST;


      btn_Submit.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, SubmitHandler);


      function SubmitHandler(e:MouseEvent):void {

          myVariables.username = txt_User.text;

          myRequest.data = myVariables;






      Simple php script in file 'test.php':




      $username = $_POST['username'];

      echo "Name: ".$username;




      When the flash project is run, it allows me to enter a name, but once submit is clicked, the following error occurs:

      Error #2044: Unhandled securityError:. text=Error #2048: Security sandbox violation: file:///C|/Users/John/AppData/Local/Temp/2%2Dtest.swf cannot load data from http://www.testing.budgetmylife.net/test.php.

          at test_fla::MainTimeline/frame1()


      Please assist......After reading many forums and tutorials, I was assuming this may have been a crossdomain issue.

      I followed some online instructions to place a file named 'CrossDomain.xml' on my webserver.


      CrossDomain.xml contents:


      <?xml version="1.0"?>

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


         <site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies="master-only" />

         <allow-access-from domain="testing.budgetmylife.net" />

         <allow-http-request-headers-from domain="*" headers="*" secure="false"/>




      This did nothing to resolve the issue.

      My goal is to actually pass variables to a php file, run some sql (which I have no issues doing), then send results back to the flash program.

      I wanted to make sure the variables were being passed to the php file before I went any further, so this is where I am stuck.

      I will hopefully not have an issue passing the variables back as I am aware of the syntax to use in the php file to send the variables and how to obtain them in the Actionscript 3 code.

      Once I get the above working properly, I will hopefully not have an issue.
