This is probably a simple question, we have an Ubuntu (10.04) LAMP server running a website created with iWeb. Images uploaded by iWeb are viewable, but images uploaded via ftp to the site with universal read/execute permissions do not appear. When I go to the URL of the image itself, however, the image shows up fine. We used to use a different server, on which the images showed up without a problem...

Is there still some kind of permissions error?

Thanks, mindoftea

<img src="..../photo1.png" ..> src is HTML document! In img tag, src attribute point to image. Image url: – bindbn Oct 18 '10 at 17:40
There are two images, photo1.png and photo2.png, in the same place. Other than that, I'm not quite sure what you mean. – mindoftea Oct 18 '10 at 17:47

Who is the owner of the file? Try changing it... chown nobody:ftp photo1.png
