How to enable absolute path?

Postby Cyrus » 03. March 2006 19:15

I just installed XAMPP to test my site offline. But, I just noticed that absolute path is not working.

Example : I want to call a spacer.gif from the images folder, so the path would be "/images/spacer.gif" but its not working. However, using relative path "images/spacer.gif" works...

I would like to know is there anyway to enable the absolute path?

What's the full file system path for spacer.gif, and how exactly are you referencing it in HTML?

The full system path would be D:\Program Files\xampp\htdocs\images\spacer.gif and I'm referring it using <img src="/images/spacer.gif" />
