Stable URL

I am sorry but I fail how this can make any sense without a stable URL. The url could consist of the region name and UUID of the object for example. But if there is no way to query it and it changes all the time, how is this supposed to be useful? --Maike Short 12:53, 17 October 2008 (PDT)

The short answer: It doesn't scale, it's up to the users to implement stable URLs on top of it. The long detailed answer can be found in the comments of Kelly Linden in SVC-1086. -- Strife (talk|contribs)

Wrong Content type

The article says

"The content type of the returned data is always 'text/plain; utf-8'"

but Image:Lsl_http_server.JPG shows xml. So the content type text/plain is wrong and must be text/xml or application/xml. It may be better to allow returning of text without that xml structure, through as it is easier to parse and can be extended to html without breaking compatibility by allowing the setting of text/html as content type. --Maike Short 02:51, 18 October 2008 (PDT)

That is a really, really, really old teaser shot. I'll get a new one up, and at least stop linking to that one. It is not representative at this point. Kelly Linden 10:47, 19 October 2008 (PDT)

i haven't been able to get this to compile

is this service available? because my scripts never compile... should i ask the land owner to open the land to this service, or is this not an available option yet? if it's not available, when will it become available?

this become available on the main SL grid since July 2009. --oobscure 22:51, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Queries Regarding Limited URLs / Region

While preparing a script for use once HTTP-IN is 'live', it suddenly occurred to me that there may be a rather significant difficulty with URL-availability for avatars. Many users 'rent' land on private regions, and many of these private regions do not actually 'sell' that land to the renter. In these situations, the URL would not be available to the renter, would it?

Taking another situation -- say land is owned by a group. Do all members of the land-ownership group have access to the URL allotment on that land? If so, that may solve the renter issue above (as most renters are put into a land group). If not, who receives the URL permissions with group-owned land? Is it possible to restrict URL permissions of group own land by a permission option in the group role definitions?Kenn Nilsson 16:36, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

There are some "personal" URLs. What are their condition of automatic releasing/renewing?

These are also set per parcel? So they renew after TP? Also, say, if some lousily-scripted piece of apparel uses all of my available URLs. And maybe all region URLs are eaten by a griefer or idk. How can I flush them, my personal ones? --Web Gearbox (talk) 01:12, 7 September 2015 (PDT)

Parcel resources

    • Like prims, all the parcels owned by the same owner and in the same region share the same pool of resources.
      If you have two parcels in a region that each support 100 URLs, then you could use all 200 in object(s) on a single parcel.

I don't believe this is actually true, and doesn't seem to be true in testing. The parcels have to be actually joined for this to work. Casper Warden (talk) 17:58, 10 November 2015 (PST)
