Problem on Using HTTPService via HTTPS with IE7


Former Community Member
I have just developed a simple Flex application by Flex
Builder 3. I use the ModuleLoader to load a "Userlogin.swf" module
when the Main Application swf start to run . Inside the
Userlogin.swf module, I have a HTTPService to connect to my backend
PHP server ( I use simple XML format to get the result from the
server). The Application run smoothly under IE7 when testing under
http protocol. But when I put it into production https protocol, it
cannot work ! I orginate the main swf via https protocol. I alway
get teh HTTP request error when the Userlogin.swf module access the
backend php file. However when it works smoothly on both Firefox
and the standalone flash player. Both are via https. Is anyone
encouner this problem before and how can I solve it.

One more, if I complier the Userlogin.swf as an application
It work smoothly with the https on IE7 !

Disable the pragma no-cache header on your web server and
your application should then work with IE7.

Also, you might run into trouble with self-signed
certificates. And even, with certificates that are not self-signed,
you need to check the URL pattern.

E.g if the certificate is configured for *.mycompany.com and
you use a URL like *.*.mycompany.com, it won't work.

As to Firefox, uploading of files won't work with HTTPS while
it does in IE...
