This article is intended to help find where things are saved on the website – in particular, how the Media Manager presents the website. All folder names are bolded.
The top or root level of the website is the folder public_html. Thus, when you connect using Classic FTP, and have it configured to use “/” as the default directory, you don’t see the public_html folder since this folder is the “root” of the website.
If you right-click on an image on the website when viewing through a browser, and click on “view image info” then you see the location something like:

- folders for each photo album
- folders and files related to the 360 degree view of Wesley-Knox

- obsolete as we changed over to LightboxImageGallery
- videos are here
Tremendous number of images and pdf files in here (/images). I can see KSC documents, home page images, staff photos
This is the tricky one. DON’T PUT ANY FILES UNDER HERE USING FTP.
When you bring up Media Manager, the name “media” is mapped to “/images” (first level folder) so what one sees are the M_images, audio, banners, … and stories folders.
When you look at media using FTP you will see folders:
If you put files under audio, say, then when you go to look at them using Media Manager – they don’t show up because “media” has been remapped by Joomal to /images.
