    htacess freaks out there, help needed!

    So i've set my htacess up so that it always redirects to index.php, that way I can manipulate URL and make my website works like "www.website.com/pageIwantToView". so the php looks for pageIWantToView.php on 'pages' directory.

    So far so good, but now the problem is, when i type "www.wesite.com/pagex/argumentx" i've got problems, cos when the website tries to display pictures, it looks for them on "pagex" directory, which, of course, doenst exist.

    And no, I cant simply put a "/" on the beginning of the image's SRC because the website is not stored on the root directory. I need a trick to make the image's src always look for images in the directory i want.

    any idea?

    thanks but it has nothing to do with my problem.
    Simply using absolute path starting with "/" won't help because my website is stored at "C:/Program Files/EasyPHP/www/mywebsite" but then when my website is done and i decide to upload it on an online server the source path wont be same, and i dont want to have the problem of changing all the img src's everytime i switch them

    Now, that's another question! You may configure a virtual host under your local machine, say yoursite.com and operate as if on the main server. Read http://bugsmode.blogspot.com/2007/11...e-windows.html
