Still not working I am curious about .htaccess as you said before. I read it controls for folder permission. maybe it is related to it. You asked me to show you .htaccess code. I found some of .htaccess. which one do you want? and which part? please help me..and thanks you very much


Which url you use to embed your image file to your localhost. You have to use http://localhost/im/image_name.JPG also if you do that thing then try to open them in browser with this url. if They open clear cache of your browser. And open your localhost again. If it show you same thing. That must be cause by .htaccess and show your  .htaccess code here


Both file are in the same foler. C:/xampp/htdocs/mywebsite/file.css C:/xampp/htdocs/mywebsite/image.jpeg css code just like this : body{ background-image: url(image.JPEG); } what is .htaccess and where I can find it? thanks


You should use http://localhost/mywebsite/image.jpeg above url to open image file in browser. If it open use this url instead of just writing image.jpge This is wrong syntax C:/xampp/htdocs/mywebsite/image.jpeg on localhost.


Does this below urls return 404 error. http://localhost/mywebsite/image.jpeg http://localhost/mywebsite/file.css if it show you an error than show your .htaccess code that is outside of your mywebsite folder.


I just read about it. I should write or activate it. XD let me check it


Problem is solved gentlemen. The cause is wrong ext of the image. It should jpg, not jpeg. Thank you everyone
