So, based on Izzy's sage advice, I've gotten my Apache running well on my WinXP Home laptop. I'm currently redesigning my website on my desktop, but thought I'd copy it onto the laptop for when I'm on the road (which includes being upstairs while watching TV). But the masthead image comes up corrupted: the top half displays OK, but the bottom either displays in grey, or has strange effects.
I recopied the JPG from the main workstation, but still no go.
I viewed the image through Paint Shop Pro (v 9) and it's fine.
I viewed the image through the browser, directly from the disk, and it's fine as well.
So the problem seems to stem from looking at it through Apache. (I also checked it out using IE as opposed to FF: same issues.)
Could it be a MIME issue?
Since it worked on my desktop, I copied the httpd.conf file from there onto the laptop and adjusted using WinMerge (great file and directory program, btw. and free!), but still no go.
Any help appreciated!
