    Well I went to delete something via ftp client and deleted the hole name of the image and then clicked away by mistake saving the img with no name at all...

    My issue now is that my www link is in jpeg format... :p
    Anyone that can tell me step by step on how to fix this issue would be a great help seeing as I can't wait for my hosting company support team to fix it.

    Thanks for your time. :cool:

    What I'm trying to figure out is if you deleted the name of an image file, how did that change the www link?

    If you can't fix the file/link names in FTP, it may have to be done in shell. If you don't have shell access, your host may have to fix it for you.

    What happen is I was connected to my server via ftp with cuteftp.
    Then when i left clicked an image file i wanted to delete I clicked it one to many times and opened it up to left me rename it I then clicked delete thinking I was deleting my image but deleted the hole name of the image.

    Then I clicked away by mistake before I could put anything at all as a name. What ended up happening is when I back out of the wwww link I still see all my other files etc but the www link is not showing as a folder but a .jpeg format now. So now its a normal file.

    x.x So now im forced to go into public_html to edit anything but thats not what I want to be forced to do. So I need to find a way to make this www go back to a folder/link or find out how I can delete it and then remake a new link....

    Not sure but this has happen two times now last time was with my old hosting company and they had it fixed in minutes. This new one is my friends hosting company he gives me free but isnt to hot on support :P

    If you disconnect and close the window, then reconect, does the www still look different? The www is just a symlink to the public_html so when you double-click on it and go in that folder, then go back to your root folder, it does change the icon used to display it. If you colse the window and reconnect, it should look the same again. It doesn't sound like anything was done to it.
