    Help With Uploading Websites To Correct Directory

    I uploaded my website, and all I got was a white screen with broken pics and links.Is there a directory in my host file manager I should have uploaded them to? I've been pulling my hair trying to figure this out.

    Your URLs are relative. Make them absolute or fix them.
    The following link is to the Microsoft Dev Network's article on the subject.

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...=vs.85%29.aspx

    Basically a relative URL is something like "/css/styles.css"
    and absolute URL is something like "http://website.com/css/styles.css"

    What O'm trying to say is my website renders on my local drive. But when I upload the website files all I get is this blank screen.

    Make sure you're uploading your website to the correct directory (folder) at your web host. If it's a html-css site then it should go to the public_html folder in your file manager.

    Make sure your images are saved as: myimage2.jpeg...not my-image-2.jpeg

    Or, as brandmatt stated you could have a problem within your site.

    So both text and images go into the public_html folder

    Correct. We also make another folder called images and put all the images in that folder and publish it to the public_html directory also. Every page that has images on it we have each page's images in their own folder.

    In your public_html folder in your file manager you would see the website pages and then another folder called images. Open that folder and can see the other page folders with their images in them,
