My links (or inline images) worked fine when previewing them on my local computer, but after I transferred them to my folder on a web server, they no longer work. Whats going on?

File and folder names on UNIX servers are case senstive.Thus, mypage.html and MyPage.HTML, for instance, are treated on a UNIX server as two separate files. The solution is to make sure that any file or folder names used in URLs match exactly the actual file or folder names. What I do is make sure that all file and folder names included in local URLs are always in all lowercase. I then set WS_FTP’s option to force lowercase file names when transferring my files. To set this option, first connect to your site in WS_FTP and click the Options button.
