A resource makes a cross-origin HTTP request when it requests a resource from a different domain than the one which the first resource itself serves.
For example, an HTML page served from http://domain-a.com makes an
<img> src request for http://domain-b.com/image.jpg. Many pages on the web today load resources like CSS stylesheets, images and scripts from separate domains.
For security reasons, browsers restrict cross-origin HTTP requests initiated from within scripts.
So here we need to do 3 steps in Apache environment.
- Enable headers module: execute this command “sudo a2enmod headers“
- Verify the module enabled by creating a page with <?php phpinfo(); ?>
- Edit .htaccess file and add these lines to allow
Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin “*”
In case of mod_headers is not showing in phpinfo() then need to restart apache server.
Enjoy the trick 🙂
