StickyCam Fix

[url removed, login to view] is an online tabloid about "internet celebrities" and popular users of social networking sites like Myspace and Stickam.

One feature of [url removed, login to view] is our "StickyCam," which is a Flash application. It allows our readers to take snapshots of their webcams; the most recent snapshot is saved as "snap.jpg" and displayed inside StickyCam widget. All previous snapshots are aaved on our Gallery page. The StickyCam application (and all files involved in its functionality) are located inside the public_html/stickycam folder.

For some reason the StickyCam stopped saving new snapshots. This project is to restore the StickyCam's functionality. No other changes or updates are needed.

We have several full cPanel backups of our server, generated when the StickyCam was functioning. Simply uploading the stickycam folder does not restore functionality (we already tried that). Permissions and ownership seem to be correct as well, but the StickyCam still won't work.

Below are some details from our host that might be useful:

Master User - Monday December 1st, 2008; 6:17 AM CST

A flash application ([url removed, login to view]) on the domain [url removed, login to view] is timing out while trying to send a request back to itself. It tries to send a request to [url removed, login to view] and times out while trying to execute the request.

Does anything appear to be set on the server that might block this connection from going through, either firewall or something in the httpd configuration.

Dear Customer,

I've verified that there is nothing preventing the accessing of that URL from your server.

root@server1 [~]# telnet [url removed, login to view] 80


Connected to [url removed, login to view] ([url removed, login to view]).

Escape character is '^]'.


telnet> quit

Connection closed.

root@server1 [~]# wget [url removed, login to view]

However, I did find that curl(commandline tool) was unable to download and display the file.

root@server1 [~]# curl [url removed, login to view]

root@server1 [~]#

Yet, curl works find for main site.

root@server1 [~]# curl [url removed, login to view] | tail

I took a closer look at the [url removed, login to view] file that was "downloaded" with wget from locally on the server.

root@server1 [~]# cat [url removed, login to view]

root@server1 [~]#

The wget downloaded version is empty, while I've verified that the hosted [url removed, login to view] is a fully valid script.

However, I've verified that the problem is not a connection being blocked.

Though I would recommend checking your suhosin, and suexec configuration for Apache/PHP to ensure they are compatible with your needs.

Please let us know if we may be of further assistance, and thank you for choosing the Planet!
