Images won't load in my pages...

Posted 25 May 2005 - 12:38 PM

Hello, thank you in advance for your help. I am having a frustrating problem of images not loading when I place my files on the remote server. Everything is there, all the code is correct, and it works fine locally. Can anyone shed light? Here is the link to my problem site:

http://www.seekmedia...detox/index.htm

I built this using Dreamweaver MX 2004.

If you can tell me what the problem is and how to fix it I would be much appreciative!

Thanks

el.

404.

make sure the images and the code are both uploaded and make sure your browsing to the correct directories on the server, not the correct directories on your computer (unless the file systems are identical, in which case its a-o-k)

the two broken images are giving me 403

so in dreamweaver when connected to the remote site, right click on the files on the server, and look for perms or chmod or something like that

i havent used dreamweaver in forever and a day

you should move the images out of the the sub folder and into your images folder and change your code to reflect that

i.e. move

to

Re: Images won't load in my pages...

Hello guys,

OK, I tried right-clicking and nothing about permissions is in there... Just edit options and something called "cloaking" which is enabled. I serched the dreamweaver help section on troubleshooting permissions problems and it tells me to:

"...2 In Windows Explorer, locate the database file or the folder containing the database, right-click the file or folder, and select Properties.
3 Select the Security tab...."

First of all, I'm on a Mac in OS 10.3.9, so I have no Windows Explorer. Second, The database file or folder??? I am connecting to a remote database, which I am accessing via FTP in Dreamweaver. So I don't know what to do.

The server is a Red Hat Linux server, if that helps at all.

Any other ideas?

PS: the images in question being in a "sub" folder is of no consequence. I moved them there because it didn't work before when they were in the images folder with the rest of them. It was part of a trial & error type troubleshooting procedure.

ok, well i gave that suggestion because everything in that folder is giving a 403 (permissions) error and the images in the images folder are not giving that error. if thats not it i dont know, but i would keep them all together now that you know that test didn't work for consisteny sake while doing all of your testing. especially since one image is working and the others aren't.

Do you have a seperate FTP client you can use other than dreamweaver?

If so you should be able to check the permissions on the image files from that program. The new version of Dreamweaver doesn't allow you to change permissions from the remote file panel.

I'm curious too if you uploaded in ASCII or BINARY mode, the images shouldn't return errors like that even if they were uploaded wrong, but I could see it happening depending on the configuration.

I would move the images back in with your other images and just try to get them to come up by typing the URL directly, your other images display fine so the folder permissions seem to be okay.

Is there a free FTP client I can download that will allow me to change permissions?

If you dont mind getting your hands dirty with the command line, you already have ftp installed.
