Bugs / Problems

Data doesnot appear when code migrated to server

Hello All,

 

I have used census API in one of my application.It fetches certain census data on the basis of zip code passed.

 

The issue is when I am executing code from localhost it is working extremely fine but when I am migrating the same code to my server it did not produce any result.

 

Can anyone suggest me how to solve this issue.

 

Prompt response would be highly appreciated.

 

Thanks!!!

 

Regards,

Deepak
