PHP Proxy Script for cross-domain requests

I wrote this php-proxy-script and have been using for different purpose (loading cross-domain data like text, xml, swf, image, etc. or for YouTube REST API  in flash, flex applications).

People keep asking about proxy-scripts in forums to manage various things (cross-domain AJAX issues). Download the proxy.php.txt, and use to solve such problems. You can also fork it on Github, and improve it.

Usage:

http://yourserver.com/proxy.php?url=<url_encoded_url>[&mimeType=<mimeType>]

Examples:

  • To load XML/Text:
    http://yourserver.com/proxy.php?url=http%3A//abdulqabiz.com/blog/index.xml
  • To load a SWF (binary-data):
    http://yourserver.com/proxy.php?url=http%3A//abdulqabiz.com/files/some.swf&mimeType=application/x-shockwave-flash
