    I am trying to use the localhost server on my macbook for website development (instead of doing testing by ftp). I downloaded the files from my webserver to the Site folder on my macbook. The Apache is running. My site is flash and make use of the SWFAddress class. The AC_RunActiveContent.js file is in the same folder as the index.html file. When I try to open the page http://localhost/~USERNAME/mysite in firefox, the title and favicon loaded properly, but the embedded flash could not be displayed. However, the same set of files works alright on the remote web server.

    I thought it might be problem with the directory and I have tried ./swf/home.swf, swf/home.swf, /swf/home.swf in the index.html file but none work.

    What may be the problem?

    The directory structure is as follows :

    -- index.html
    -- AC_RunActiveContent.js
    -- swf (folder)
    ---- home.swf

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
    <link rel="icon"  href="favicon.ico"/>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
    <script language="javascript">AC_FL_RunContent = 0;</script>
    <script src="AC_RunActiveContent.js" language="javascript"></script>
    <body bgcolor="#ffffff">
    <p align = "center">
    <!--url's used in the movie-->
    <!--text used in the movie-->
    <!-- saved from url=(0013)about:internet -->
    <script language="javascript">
    	if (AC_FL_RunContent == 0) {
    		alert("This page requires AC_RunActiveContent.js.");
    	} else {

    I already tried changing all the swf/home or ../swf/home.swf or whatever to swf/home.swf but still the flash does not load.

    I am posting this index.html coz despite all the discrepancies, it works on the remote server
