have a problem with images not displaying on my site, it only happens occasionally, but when it does happen the website is hopeless to use as the pages rely heavily on lots of small images to make up the graphics of the page. the problem is that the images do not display, they dont show as a red 'x' either, the page just looks as if the code for the images was not there, the browser never finishes loading the page, and it all looks a mess. most of the time there is no problem at all. same problem in IE and firefox. I am sure this is a hosting issue, im running my site on a server set up by a friend, the same server hosts several other sites that do not have this issue. what can we try?

we are running php 5.1.2 on fedora 5.

help would be much appreciated :D

Where are the images on the filesystem and what are their permissions? What code are you using to include the images (the actual src tag)?

Code: [ Select ]
<img src="../images/logo2.gif" width="327" height="152" alt="Pickman Technologies Logo"/>
some of them contain the full url like this
Code: [ Select ]
<img src="http://www.pickmantechnologies.com/images/logo2.gif" width="327" height="152" alt="Pickman Technologies Logo"/>
there is some javascript to preload some rollover images, if thats at all relevant. im using a dreamweaver template for all my pages, so the top and sides of the pages are all the same, and when the problem is occouring it happens across all pages.


they are all .gif format, the permission is set at 755 for the images folder.

try accessing the images directory (put the full URL to a given image in the address bar of your browser) and see if they come up. If they do, your problem is with your script(s), if they don't, look at your web server's error log for the problem.

when i try to access images directly, browser pauses for about 20 seconds, and then shows its own error page IE is "the page cannot be displayed" even though i have custom 404 error page set up on the server. So I think its an occasional communication problem between the server and browser. ill have a look at the error logs on the server.

checked the server error logs and there is nothing relevant to my website. not sure where to go from here, I have my domains with telivo, using telivo nameservers but pointing to our server. are there any settings here that could be affecting it?

Go into your internet options and disable "show friendly errors", then try to hit the image again. Doing this will at least give you an error code to work with.

If your error code is indeed a 404, make sure you have the right path to the image. If you do, click Start > Run > cmd and then type in "ping mydomainname.com" and hit Enter (change mydomainname to your domain name). Look at the IP address returned by that and make sure it's pointing to your server.
