apache 2 new install
my images won't load?

 9:21 am on May 8, 2004 (gmt 0)

hi just set up apache 2 for the first time (redhat enterprise, everything by rpm) and my images won't load?

i have created a simple html file with a logo in it, but although i can see the title of the page and view source correctly, the image just won't load. the paths are correct.

is there some content setting i have to change?

much appreciate the help

added: i have just seen the following in the error_log

Permission denied: file permissions deny server access: /var/www/sites/mysite/htdocs/logo_big.gif

and am not sure what it refers to

Check the permissions of that directory and the images. If you created the dir or images as root, you prolly dont have the correct perms on them...

chmod -R 755 /var/www/sites/mysite/htdocs/

Should do it I think...

You might need to change ownership also, if you wish to edit files etc in that dir as your normal user: chown -R username /dir
