File Manager using wrong file path

File Manager using wrong file path

I'm working with the File Manager portion of the HTML Editor (in this page, this is independent of the HTML editor).

No matter what I try the file path that is inserted into the database is


That /siterootdirectory/ will make the files invalid once I make this site live. On my testing machine the siterootdirectory will be something like "sitename" but on the live server the root directory will be "public_html"

Even if I set the paths to recall the data to ../siterootdirectory/ it won't work because the siterootdirectory isn't the same name from local to live server.

Please advise how to change this.

I have tried putting the imagedirectory inside the same directory as the page with the file manager upload, I have tried changing all sorts of settings.

From reading the forum it wold appear there is a place to change the "root directory" but I can't find a folder for "HTML Editor" anywhere in my site files.

Using PHP, HTML Editor 3.01. Dreamweaver CS3, Mac OSX. Server is MAMP.

Thank you.
