Html site settings and Dataassist page creation (file upload settings under Server settings tab)

I'm soooo confused. Searched but could not find answer.
Everything works ok until I try to define a field as type (File Manager). When I go to the server settings, I select the sibling folder to save my uploaded files. I have tried just about everything and it direct me to a subfolder of my executable php files.

I have a folder where all my executable files reside in "main/workfiles", I want to upload my files to "main/uploads". When I execute upload, it attempts to save files to "main/workfiles/uploads".

I'm assuming I have to define in my "file upload settings". I have tried "../uploads", "/../uploads/", etc but it doesn't work.
I have tried doing the same using webassist> forms> html editor > site settings to no avail.

What am I doing wrong? Where exactly do I define my directory and is there a conflict between site settings and file upload settings?
