No there is not but I did a test here. I moved the origional images directory out of /var/ww/html and created a new images directory then placed screener1.jpg inside the newly created /var/www/html/images directory. I then wen to my browser and went to http://mydomain.dnsforwarder.net/images/screener1.jpg and it works fine

I then moved all the images from the one i moved over to the newly created directories and everything is working fine now.......It has me confused why the previous images directory was corrupt....Well Thank you for sticking with me on this one PVS. It's up and running and looks wonderful, but the way I had to go about getting it fixed isn't the linux way. I wish I knew
why that origional directory was messed up. Do you think it could be because i uploaded it
to that server via FTP??

check what's the difference in rights between your new and old directory - that can be an answer

Corruption through ftp CAN occur if you transfer an image (binary file) as a text file. An ftp transfer, however, shouldn't really mangle your permissions. I doubt that this was the issue.

Maybe I'm doing things totally wrong...It seems as if i don't create the files as root then nobody can see them. I have to be doing something wrong because I should be able to be logged on as my regular user and create files and such which I'm unable to do as regular user. I just don't know which directiong to go.

Do i make my regular user part of the apache group, or do i make my regular user part of the root group....And HOW do i do that??

1. What level is your browser's cache set to?

If/when you need to check stuff make *sure* your browser is not dishing up something out of cache by enforcing a page refresh.
In firefox hold the shift key down while hitting the refresh button.

2. The third and fourth column of the output from 'ls -l' always shows the owner and then the group.

3. Do not ever make a regular user a member of the root group. For these purposes, it's better if they are a member of apache.
To see how to modify an existing users account, try typing in 'man moduser' and note the difference between the user's initial
and supplementary groups. To make mark a member of the apache group try 'moduser mark -G apache'.
