File Manager using wrong file path

I don't think you understand what I'm asking. I know that the server paths and setup must be the same.

On my computer I have many sites set up.
their server addresses are
thesitename/

On the testing webserver the addresses will be

thesitename/

On the live webserver the address will be

www.thesitename.com

Right now the File Manager uploads into the correct place, but the file path it saves in the database is:

/thesitename/media/file.ext

/thesitename/ is not necessary that is the folder/root of the website and does not exist on the webserver.

I think that File Manager things that the root of the site is actually the htdocs folder rather than thesitename folder.

I have looked through the forums and found references to an HTML Editor folder that should be present in the website's directory along with all the other webassist folders - that folder is not there. Please advise - how do I find out what HTML Editor considers to be the site root.
