Paths for image uploads

I've seen a couple of similar threads to this, but there doesn't appear to have been a solution as yet.

I've set the path for image uploads as /uploads in the HTML Editor global file upload settings. I've then uploaded an image. The image appears in the file manager on the server, and I can see a thumbnail of the image, but when I attempt to insert the image into the editor the path is incorrect.

The path used is /public_html/uploads rather than /uploads and I can't find where to change this. There's obviously a script somewhere that finds the root directory, but this means that it doesn't work properly.

I find that the reference to my image is entered as:


when it needs to be:


Can you advise how I would correct this?

In the HTMLEditor folder, browse to editor/filemanager/connectors/php and open the config.php.

Could you please reply with line 26 and 27 and line 41.

Thanks for your response, the lines are as follows:

26: $WA_EditorLocalRoot = '/My Local Domain/';
27: $WA_EditorRemoteRoot = '/public_html/';

41: $Config['UserFilesPath'] = 'uploads/';

Looks like it's something to do with line 27 then?

Yes, try changing line 27 to:

$WA_EditorRemoteRoot = '/';
