The connection to the server was unsuccessful.(file:///android_asset/www/index.html)

I am developing a android app using phonegap, it calls a website ( to get json encoded data. This is working fine on the emulator, then I built the android package .apk file using phonegap build but when i installed this package on my android phone and started the app, it force closes the application showing the error "The connection to the server was unsuccessful.(file:///android_asset/www/index.html)".

I have built the app using phonegap build, passed it the index.html as well as tried the .zip file package but still getting this error. I tried searching for this error and also included the below code in my app as suggested on some sites but still it is giving error.

super.setBooleanProperty("loadInWebView", true);
super.setIntegerProperty("loadUrlTimeoutValue", 60000);

Has this got something to do with the website that i am trying to call from my app? I tried opening that site in the mobile browser but it didn't opened but the website works fine on a desktop browser. Is there something wrong that i am doing?


I'm guessing its the port number your using. Have you tried using port 80 for your server rather than 8081? Its possible that port isn't open on your device.

The following code snippet solved my problem

public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.setIntegerProperty("loadUrlTimeoutValue", 10000); 

I have added

super.setIntegerProperty("loadUrlTimeoutValue", 10000); 

to the file for 10 sec waiting time

*I had Same problem solved by referring * this link...

This error occurs bcoz of Server connection timeout so, Has mentioned in above post u can give 10 sec delay in that time put some splash screen..
