One recalcitrant jpg file fails to show up

by LiveAndLearn / March 28, 2006 2:15 PM PST

Hello all,

I uploaded all my jpg files (3 in all) and an index.html files to the web server of my ISP. I am excited in anticipation as this is my virgin web page. Yep! Nothing works perfectly on the first go...

Everything on my webpage displayed ok except for one jpg file. In its place is the little red-cross placeholder. Of course, I tested the web page on my PC, and everything displayed okay, I then simply copied all the files across (all in one directory) to the web server. What happened?

To be sure, I thought that particular jpg file may have been corrupted (it shouldn't), so I deleted it from the server, and uploaded again. Nope, it didn't help. Does anyone have this problem before?

Also, I asked someone else to view my webpage, the same nagging jpg fail to show up...

Thanx in advance

The file name is case sensitive

I found out this is what's wrong. Just thought I share it with you.

The file name for the jpg is case sensitive. I don't know if this is due to html or because the web server is run on Unix.
In any case, problem sloved by keeping the case of the file the same.
