It might be a rookie mistake on my side, but couldn’t find a suitable solution online yet. I recently switched to warehousing images used in a RW project - I directly upload the images into a suitable folder/subfolder on the server (using CPanel or FTP), then link the complete file path in the image stack (could be any, e.g. Image(Source) or Parallaxer, etc.)
The linked images are not shown in the RW preview (V8.6.2), nor in a Safari Preview (the web console shows 403 errors) - however, when the project is uploaded to the server, all works just fine. The image folder structure is in the same domain, folders are ‘755’, all images ‘644’ - switching images also to ‘755’ makes no difference.
My current workaround is to design the page with copied images, then replace them with the warehoused image link before the uploading. It works, but it would be great if the warehoused images could be directly seen in the preview as well.
Am I missing any necessary setting changes above and beyond the ‘644’ or ‘755’ access privileges that could cause the 403 errors ? Thanks for sharing your expertise, much appreciated.
