edward de jong commented on COUCHDB-867:
----------------------------------------

i am trying to get flash to connect to my database, and desperately need this crossdomain.xml
file to get served up. can somebody please tell me how to create the local.ini file, and where
that file is supposed to go? i don't see a local.ini file on my machine...

> Some files at the root level of a website have a special meaning, such as favicon.ico
storing the favorite icon, which is processed correctly in the [httpd_global_handlers] section
of the ini file with this instruction:
> favicon.ico = {couch_httpd_misc_handlers, handle_favicon_req, "../share/couchdb/www"}
> But this is the only one handled while other files, which are critical when to accessing
the CouchDB server from Flash, Flex, Silverlight..., are missing
> - crossdomain.xml (this one should be a top priority fix!)
> - clientaccesspolicy.xml -- See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc838250%28v=VS.95%29.aspx#crossdomain_communication
> And there's also 'robots.txt' to prevent search engines from accessing some files / directories.
