    Dynamic text disappears in localhost

    Hi,
    I have a rather strange issue here. My flash contains a dynamic text field, which is populated from a PHP file using LoadVars. Here is how my ActionScript looks like:
    Code:
    //=================================
    // INIT
    //=================================
    path = "";//declare path to php files
    lvOut = new LoadVars();//create lv object
    lvIn = new LoadVars();//create lv object
    lvIn.onLoad = function(success) {
    	if (success) {
    		//PHP variable value to textbox
    		//trace("success");
    		_level0.menu1.menu1 = "<a href='" + lvIn.url1 + "'>" + lvIn.title1 + "</a>";
    	}
    };
    
    //get results returned to lvIn
    lvOut.sendAndLoad(path + "createMenu.php",lvIn,"POST");
    When I publish this flash and keep the php file at the same location as the swf, everything works fine. However the moment I add this flash to the website that I am developing in my localhost, the text disappears, although the background animation works fine. I doubly checked the location of the php file and its path in flash, but with no luck.

    Any help would be fantastic

    Thanks in advance,

    Abi.

    If you are on a localhost, then try putting http://localhost/phpfile.php instead of relative. It has something to do with the file's location, possibly not in the root folder.
