I'm having some trouble getting started with Craft.
I'm attempting to upload some image assets for the first time.
I've set up an asset source. I've tried using both a relative and an absolute path to the file. I am certain that the absolute path name is correct because I simply copied from the
pwd command on my server. Also, when I look in the directory, I see the uploaded images.
I've also supplied a url for the source. (I've actually tried a few different ones.)
Every time I've made a change, I've gone into settings and run
Update Asset Indexes just to be sure everything was up to date.
However, when I try to view the images, I get a 404. I've tried typing the URL into the address bar, as well as clicking on "View asset" on the assets page.
I did see this similar question, but I'm not running an nginx server. I'm running Apache.
I would love any insight on what I could be doing wrong. If you need any additional information, I'll be more than happy to edit it in.
Edit: For clarity, I'm trying to set up my file directory and my url to have different structures, which I believe is possible. For example, I want my images to be in
public_html/media/images, but I want the url for images to be http://mysite.com/images. Doing that seems to be what causes the problem.
