    cant retrieve data from php

    arpiyem
      hi, i just uploaded to our remote host the files with php and flex combination. here on my local computer, i was able to retrieve data using my local database, i also tried to connect from my local using a remote database. but when i uploaded the files, and tried to connect to a red hat linux host i think, i cant make it to work. i can see the interface but no data was retrieve. i googled some possible options and used crossdomain, but still cant get it to work. im, by the way, new to flex and would like to explore this great technology. i was thinking the my tags in <mx:HTTPService> were incorrect, i have url=" http://server/docroot/pages/php/request.php", i also tried url="php/request.php", but still failed to retrieve the information.hope u can help me guys. thank you in advance.

          If you're loading your SWF from one server, and contacting another server,
          you need place the crossdomain.xml file on the other server from which you're
          requesting data, typically in the webroot.

          That is, if you're trying to contact " http://server/docroot/pages/php/request.php"
          then you'd need to have a crossdomain.xml file at " http://server/crossdomain.xml".
          This crossdomain.xml policy file must include the domain from which your
          SWF was loaded in order for it to be allowed to contact this domain.
