From within Flash, check the 'Publish settings' and the 'Flash Player version' you are publishing to. It may be that the new swf you made targets a newer version of the Flash Player, and the HTML in your PHP page may still be targetting the old version.

If you don't know what any of this means, try going *backwards* through each the 'Flash Player version' settings and publish and test each new swf you make.

If it could clear something:

I installed the last flash player version.

The way flash is fired from within PHP with success in the older .swf nad not with the new   :

<param name="movie" value="siteespiriplug_2012.swf" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#999999" /><embed src="siteespiriplug_2012.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#999999" width="100%" height="100%" name="siteespiriplug_2012" align="" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />

PHP actually has nothing to do with it.  PHP just generates the HTML document that gets sent to the client browser.  If the browser has the latest Flash plug-ins, it should be able to run flash animations.
