Problem with css file paths

Ok i have a domain directory called TEF. now the actual path is like root/blah/moreblah/folder/folder2/TEF.
but if you type www.theepicfew.com it will just automatically go to TEF.

Now here is the problem. I have a bunch of external style sheets in /TEF/Stylesheets. But for some reason when I link my css in index.php like so:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="Stylesheets/Navigation.CSS" />

for some reason, the style changes are not getting applied to the page.

if you go to http://www.newfazeindustries.com/guild/guildarmory/guildarmory
and then http://www.theepicfew.com, you'll see the difference.

I tried doing "/Stylesheets/Navigation.CSS", but no luck.

But I have the folder structure the exact same as it is on newfazeindustries, but it doesnt work on theepicfew for some reason....

This might be a really dumb question, but I'm not all that familiar with this stuff.

Thanks,

Justin

Add the app context path to the CSS file path.

I'm sorry if I come off as annoying, but what is the app context path?

Thanks again,

Justin

Not annoying at all.

It's what's necessary to create a full pathname for web-app-relative files. You can use JSTL's <c:url> tag, a scriptlet <%= request.getServletContext...%> (or something like that, I actually don't remember). Searching the web for something like "jsp +get context path" will turn up a lot of hits.

Oh ok, I'll see if there is a way to do it in php.. that's the server sided code I'm using and don't know if the server supports JSP.

Thank man!

Oh. That's a completely different question, since PHP doesn't have an equivalent to contexts. You shouldn't need to do anything at all.

well it's weird, because my script files are working just fine, only my .CSS files are not being recognized (so i think), but I have all the functionality of my site in external .js files and they work just fine.

but even when I try to do a link like so:

admin

where admin.php is in the same directory, gives me a broken link error.

I'm not sure what's going on then....

When I navigate to http://www.theepicfew.com/Stylesheets I get a 404 whereas when I navigate to http://www.theepicfew.com/Scripts I get a Forbidden error, which makes sense. But the 404 would imply that path doesn't exist at all. Are you sure it is there?

lmao wow, it was case sensitive..... on my server it wasn't, but on the godaddy one it was >: (.

it was "StyleSheets" not "Stylesheets".

Sorry for the fuss over nothing.

Thanks for all the help though.

Windows is not case sensitive, linux is.

Ah, I thought I had a linux server on 1and1, maybe not.
