HTML Relative Paths

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi Everybody. I made a website. The website consists of the root folder and a subfolder called images. In my html files (residing in the root directory) I specify the image paths as e.g. <img src="images/someimage.jpg">. The images show up just fine on my local computer, but they fail to show up when I uploaded them to the server. The server is running Linux. When, on the server, I move the images to the root directory and change image tags to e.g. <img src="someimage.jpg">, the images show up, just fine. Can somebody explain why? Thank You! (Hardware)
