Moving through the CPanel file struction within HTML
I have recently moved all my domains (and associated websites) to GoDaddy. Everything I've tried to do with my webpages, so far, seems to work great except one item. I have one main webhosting account and several ADDON domains beneath it. So at my root directory (/home/rexroad/public_html) I have all my main domain html files and a pics folder and the several folder for my ADDON domains. I want to reference the pics folder (/home/Rexroad/public_html/pics) from all my ADDON domains. So from /home/rexroad/public_html/domain1.com/index.html I want to load a picture from higher in the structure. Normally I would use <img src="../pics/image1.jpg"> to move up one level and then into the pics folder, but this does not work. I can use <img src="http://www.rexroad.us/pics/image1.jpg"> but this is not very efficient. Any ideas? Thanks.......
Re: Moving through the CPanel file struction within HTML
Maybe I'm wrong or confused but... If you can use <img src="http://www.rexroad.us/pics/image1.jpg"> to show an image on "/home/rexroad/public_html/domain1.com/index.html"... That means "index.html" and "/pics/" are in the same directory... therefore, ".." is not necessary because "../pics/image1.jpg" will actually(should) take to the same directory as "domain1.com"...
Here's a few things you can do to test which one will work:
1 - <img src="/pics/image1.jpg">
2 - <img src="/../pics/image1.jpg">
Or, are you trying to use resources from a different subdomain?
