Direct Amazon Uploader: Trouble with SSL

Apr 9, 2009 at 7:49 PM

I am trying to use the Direct Amazon Uploader on a secure site (i.e. https), but I have run into a problem. I am unable to upload any file to Amazon, When I am in Firefox3, the flash returns a status of 5 (i.e. Error), but I am not sure how to retrieve any information about the error. When I am in IE7, I always get the following flash error:

Error #2044: Unhandled SecurityErrorEvent:. text=Error #2049: Security sandbox violation: cannot upload data to

As described in the doc, I have uploaded the following crossdomain.xml to the root of and made it public-readable:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM
     <allow-access-from domain="*" secure="false" />

I have tried using Fiddler to inspect the request the flash is sending to Amazon, but it is secure. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

If you use HTTPS allow-access-from domain secure atribute must be set to true

I've changed secure to be true, but I still see the exact same error.

You either don't have crossdomain.xml on the right place or it is not accessible from outside. There is no other way.

And I see you have some dot after What is that the end of your sentance or the name of your folder? That may be it as well.

The period was in the flash error message. Here is the location of my crossdomain.xml (url remove for privacy purposes) and I am trying to upload a file to the same bucket.

You don't have secure sertificate - that seems to be the problem.

Ah! I changed the bucket from "my.bucket" to "my-bucket" and the problem went away. Thanks for your help. I really appreciate it.
