I stored the image, /images/test.jpg. But how do I use that in my html ? I tried <img src=“/images/test.jpg” style=“width:100%”>. But that did not work.

Hey friend!

This is going to be very relative to your situation and setup, but I’m going to make some assumptions here and see if I can point you in the right direction.

Let’s say you’re deploying your website at /var/www/html and you have the images in /var/www/html/images. Then you create index.html in /var/www/html with that code sample you gave. If that were the case, I would perhaps change it to:

<img src="images/test.jpg">

Does that make any sense for your situation?


  • I do not have the images stored in the /var/www/html, I have them stored on the main page. I created a new folder images, to store them in. What am I supposed to do ?
