Ok thanks for getting back to me...
Actually the files were in a sub directory... but I moved them to the root directory to test whether powerstore was not working because my files were in a sub directory and should be in the root directory. after moving them it still gave me the same result. as for the images folder it "is" in the root directory. without sitting here listing every single file.. I can tell you that all of the powerstore files are located in the root folder. to test whether the files became corrupted upon upload I actually browsed to the image logo.png in the images/admins folder and opened it to edit it right from off of the server and it looks just as it should... but yet it wont show on the admin login page.. even the store part you mentioned is devoid of several elements.
I went to the admins folder and opened the home.php to check for that line of code and I found it. Below I pasted the line of code from "Admin/Home.php":
<?php require_once('../Connections/PowerStoreConnection.php'); ?>
Ill be here man, thanks for that help.
