JPG files with an underscore in the files name are not recongized

I have some image files (JPG) that have an underscore in the filename that are not being recognized.  I get a 404 error.

Are there file name rules for cPanel?  If so, can someone supply a link?  TNX

Hi @gymusic, as cPanel runs on Linux servers, it would follow the file naming system for that operating system.  You can read about specific rules for Linux files here: https://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/linuxunix-rules-for-naming-file-and-directory-names/.  

 

Thanks!

MPC, TNX for your reply and the link.  It appears from your link, that underscore CAN be used in a file name, yet is not working for me.  To be more specific... I have a sub menu "/pix/" under the public_html menu.  They are JPG image files.  When I place file names in a browser, the ones with a _ in the file name, I get a "file not found 404".  All other files can be seen.
