    When i visit a page on my site, i must always use the same 'case' as i have stored it in.

    How do i change this so it saves as all lowercase letters and not mixed case letters.



    Please advise.

    Thanks

    From my unerstanding, other than domain name which can be anything small or BIG, the file names MUST BE the same case.

    Go on, have a guess
    It's possible, but requires apache to have the mod_speling module installed:
    http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/mod/mod_speling.html

    You can the add the CheckSpelling On directive to a local .htaccess file to have case-insensitive matches. However, if you're not the admin of the server then you're possibly out of luck.

    The question was: "...saves as all lowercase letters and not mixed case letters."
    You have not mentioned the program you are using to upload the pages.

    If you want to change a file or directory that you already have a mixed case to lowercase
    use ftp to rename it.
    +++++++++++++++++++++
    Referencing to pages or directories is case sensitive.
    Have you tried creating a link using an alternate case?

    example: actual directory is

    wedding

    > ln -s wedding Wedding

    Creates a symbolic link known as Wedding

    now access EITHER www.ddd.com/wedding or www.ddd.com/Wedding

    Although this does not solve all the problems,
    in actual use it can solve most.
