What is a handler.

A handler is a server script, that returns data (usually in XML format) to the application upon request. For example, it can return user profile information or user authorization information.

All handlers can be edited in the application main settings file /flashcoms/videochat/settings/main.xml, however, make sure you're not removing markers, like: {ROOT}, {NAME} and {UID}. These are system markers in which the application inserts the appropriate values.

Depending on the application and handler you may find several different markers. The most commonly used markers are:

ROOT root folder for all flashcoms applications (FLASHCOMS_HTTP_ROOT/flashcoms/).
NAME user name.
UID user identifier (used when site authorization is not session/cookies based)

{ROOT} marker value ends with "/", so if you change the path of the handler file to, for example, /avatar.php located in the FLASHCOMS_HTTP_ROOT folder, then the new address path should look like this: {ROOT}../avatar.php
