Load file from Local Server, getting malformed url error

I have a local server setup at http://localhost:8000. I can verify it is working properly through my browser.

Trying to load a text file from that directory as such:

public string url = "http://localhost:8000/userqueue.json";

    IEnumerator Start()
        WWW www = new WWW(url);
        yield return www;

I get a url malformed error from that and no data. Any suggestions?

Thank you!

Solved! ooh baby.

Despite being initialized in code, because the url string is public it was defaulting to a blank string in my inspector.

Is this a bug? Ints seem to initialize properly in this same manner.
