i would like to move a site that i made a while back from php to ruby.
most of the site was in flash and it just called my php files to
generate the dynamic text in the flash movie.
i tried the same thing and just had rails generate my text from the
database but i noticed that i can’t pull anything like
‘/main/flash_info’, i have to use the full url:
‘http://www.example.site/main/flash_info’. on top of that, i can only
get it to work if the page containing the flash file also has a www. in
if i had to guess, i would almost think that having the full url in
there forces the files to be processed by ruby where making a local call
just spits out the raw file, or maybe none at all since files don’t
actually exist at the url given.
has anyone had any experience with this?
