Hi, sorry for the confusion. The web root & URL should point at the root of your Apache web server, i.e. the htdocs directory and its corresponding URL (probably something like "http://localhost/" ).
Is there a way we could make this clearer? What would you have expected to enter -- just the URL directly to the Flex app you're building, for example?
Hope that helps,
on that dialog i browse to my htdoc folder and leave web root as:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\htdocs
and root url as:
and i can browse to localhost which displays "it works" from apache simple html file there (index.html)
so that index html is in htdocs
i hit the validate button and it says it can't find the server unlike in the video tute that of course uses MAMP and port 8888 or whatnot.
regardless, i hit finish and plow forward and it dies later with the service introspect message. There was an error with service introspection.
details in error box:
There was an error during service introspection.
but the that folder (myapp102-debug) is under htdocs with gateway, config file from zend, and the zend folders.
note sure why i can get to localhost from IE but not from Flash Builder 4
tlane (video tutorial adobe guy) entered:
Project name: myapp
Proj location (default checked) Folder: /Users/tlane/Documents/Adobe Flash Builder Beta/myapp
App Svr type: PHP
Web Root: /Applications/MAMP/htdocs
Root URL: http://localhost:8888
Output folder: /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/myapp-debug
hits Validate Configuration button, msg up top goes from Red to successful (the web root folder and root url are valid)
Project name: myapp
Proj location (default checked) Folder: C:\Users\Drew\Adobe Flash Builder Beta\myapp
App Svr type: PHP
Web root (from browse button): C:\Program Files (x86)\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\htdocs
Root URL: http://localhost
Output folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\htdocs\myapp-debug
hits Validate Config button, msgs reads:
Cannot access the web server. The server may not be running, or the web root folder or root URL may be invalid.
Just to ensure that the URL and htdocs folder are pointing to the same location, can you try changing the "It works!!!" message in the file and then reloading it in the browser?

In addition to Mayank's suggestion, make sure you can browse in IE to http://localhost/my-app/ and see some files in there. If you can, then you indeed have filled out the wizard fields correctly and FB is able to write to that location and the problem is with FB's ability to ping that URL.
Let's see if it's a problem with the Java runtime that FB is running on. In FB, go to Window > Other Views > General > Internal Web Browser. Then enter that same URL you were able to access in IE in the internal web browser view that opens up. Can you access it there?
i will try to mark this as closed.
i am on windows 7 and tho i filled out the dialog
as described, clearly it cannot write there due to access permissions and a found files written to :
c:\users\drew\appdata\local\VirtualStore\program files (x86)\apache etc\ etc etc
and that is why it died. i am having problems after that but i think those can be answered in different posts.
thx for getting my by this hurdle at least tho it dies in the Data Services
Please describe the problem you are facing in the data/services panel in the new thread. We'll try to help you over that hurdle as well .
ditched Apache, went with XAMPP. works like a charm. thx guys.
I'm having the same problem and I'm on Windows 7 as well. If anyone has a solution to this that does not require
me to change web servers I'd appreciate the help. According to the Zend site, I should be able to use the
Flash Builder plug-in along with their Zend Server Eclipse PHP install, but maybe they had not tested on Windows
I finally figured this out!
I'm on Windows 7 Professional.
Evidently, even though I was the one to install all the software and was the one that was using same, I still had to modify the permissions for the htdocs folder to allow for writing by the Users group in which my login fell, even though my login is obviously an Administrator. Evidently Flash Builder could not modify the root directory even though I could, until I made this change. Strange, but it looks like I can now move on to the next steps of learning this system.
