'Fetching' file's content over Internet (not download it)

  • I want to fetch files from the Internet and use them in C2.

    Example:

    A File ~ "file.txt" from "http://example.com/folder/file.txt" and use the file's content under C2

    For an instance:

    A file named "users.txt" containing: "hello, world, test", fetching them from C2 somehow and using the fetched value as string

    Any possible ways?

    (Extra: I'm using Release 212 of C2) Thanks

  • : I'm using Release 212 of C2

    I can't see any reason why anyone would still be using a version from 2.5 years ago. There have been many, many changes to C2 since then. It is not feasible to try and support such an old version.

    Please upgrade to at least the latest stable release (link at bottom of forum) or it's likely that users giving you examples will not work.

    Thanks

  • Any way to get the server's response from C2? (like PHP file 'echoes' something?)

    AJAX too.

    If you do a GET/POST to a PHP page like this:

    echo 0;

    You'll have access to that "0" with AJAX.LastData

    1. Are you doing a POST to a GET URL?. Maybe that's your problem. You should see your web server logs.

    2. Use IP instead of localhost

    3. In your php file add this as the first line (after <?php): header('Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *');

    4. Print as debug AJAX.LastData even in the "On any error" event.

  • Maybe attaching a simple .capx might help others to see what you have done and maybe see what needs to be done.

    It's usually the quickest way to get a successful resolution to your problem.

    You just need to use one of the many free hosting sites. Just export as a single file, upload to the site, get the 'public' url and post it here for everyone to access. It really is the best way to get effective help.
