    problems with setting up flex server




      I am trying to create a data centric app with php but Flash Builder wont accept the web root folder and says it does not exist.

      My setup is:


      Web Root: /htdocs

      Root URL: http://www.mysite.com


      Any ideas?


      Also where can I find the patches/updates for Flash builder.. a site search gave zero results.

          From the path I assume that your apache server is running on localhost. The URL in this case should be http://localhost:


          If /htdocs is a mounted drive, then please ensure that http://www.mysite.com resolves to the ip address of the machine from where /htdocs has been mounted.

            Thanks a lot for your reply. I am setting up for remote host not local.

            I have a local setup working fine and now I want to configure it so i can work directly on the server hosting my site.


            But perhaps this is not the intention with the new flex server settings?

              For flash builder to work correctly with your server, it will need file system access to the webroot. If this webroot is on a remote server, then the remote folder needs to be mounted on the local file system (Connect to server functionality in Finder) and then the local mount point needs to be specified as the web root. The URL will however be that of the remote server.
