Logo not showing on testing server

Hi, I have now got PS3 working both remotely and locally, but the local version isn't able to display the logo; why is that?

The paths in the database for both remote and local are identical, so what's stopping it display?

I'm running Mac OSX 10.6 and XAMPP (with everything working), but still no joy! I am actually thinking of just deleting the div with the logo in it and just placing the logo in DW just to get around the problem.

Thanks.

What do you see where your logo should be? Can you view the properties for the image and check it's source and compare that to the location it should residing on your server?

If it is all the same and you the image properly sourced and it exists on the server then you should get the same result.

Hi

I had the same issue though on windows and WAMP, turned out to be a path error
so on my local server the path is

/mbsuk/imagesupload/cms_files/logombs.png

and on my remote server:

/imagesupload/cms_files/logombs.png

might not be the same on a mac

OK, I have just created a new PS3 test store, and looked at the code for the logos there, and the code is different this time to the code in my real store.

What has basically happened is that the installation process on my local testing server has created this path:

/~username/PS3test/Images/Logo.png

Where as on the remote live server, it has created this:

/Images/Logo.png

So, it would seem that there are more differences between a live and testing server than initially meets the eye, but this isn't too big of a deal. I just don't understand why the logo doesn't work when the files displaying them are at the same level as the Images folder meaning that they are relative to the logo's position. Why has the local installation added the extra /~username/PS3test/ when the site root is inside the folder of PS3test? It's basically the same as the remote installation isn't it?

Both of these paths should be relative to the site root on the local and remote sites. This means that on your local server the path to the root of your site is:

PS3test/

On the live server the path to the root of the site would be:

yourdomain.com/

These should be based on where you extracted the PS3 files to and ran the install.
