Unable to see images uploaded via FTP


#1

Hi

I just set up my website with dreamhost and pretty much all I’ve done is install wordpress. I tried to use filezilla to upload a couple pictures but I’m having trouble viewing them in the browser. I can see them at ftp://domain.org/picture once I’ve logged in, but I can’t see them at just http://domain.org/picture. Why is this occurring?

Thanks

You are uploading the pictures to the wrong directory.

The web directory is specified in the Panel under Manage Domains. Look it up and write it down along with the username associated with the domain.

Then log into FTP as that username and navigate to the web directory and upload your files and directories there.

Then in your browser they will appear at http://domain.org/
