Images replaced via ftp not showing up on site

Hi
I have uploaded a wordpress site into a subfolder on my ccgi webspace, I have finally managed to get it working using the file permissions script supplied in this forum.  I am able to upload images and they work.  However, I have some other images I've changed (but kept the same name) related to the design of the theme.  These go in the themes/theme-name/images folder and I am transferring the altered images via ftp replacing the theme images that are there.  However, when I do this the image just disappears from the site - the original theme image has gone and the image of the same name that I have made changes to doesn't appear.  
I have checked the permissions of the /images folder - 750, the images are all 640, can anyone help?  Is there a solution I've missed as to why the design images don't show up?
Thanks in advance.

Have they been replaced with .JPG instead of .jpg or vice versa?

Those file permissions should be OK.
Did you upload the images using a binary transfer (auto should work)?
Can you see the image if you specifically browse to it?
eg
http://<ccgi domain>/<blog_folder>/wp-content/themes/<themename>/images/<imagename.typ>

Hi, they are .png's and .png hasn't been replaced by .PNG - the names are identical!  Thanks

Re: Images replaced via ftp not showing up on site

When I go to the url of the image I get a message - Image (url) cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.  The image was fine on my localhost.  I uploaded the images using ASC11 - but will give it a go using binary now...  Thanks

Re: Images replaced via ftp not showing up on site

Hi
It's working now!  Thanks.  A quick question, I've used some code I found on the forum to eliminate the /~username/ from the url, however if I go to http://ccgi.username.plus.com/sitename it diverts to http://ccgi.username.plus.com/scsc/ ; !  If I enter http://ccgi.username.plus.com/sitename/ i.e. with a forward slash at the end, it works.  The code I put into the .htaccess is: 
# BEGIN WordPress
RewriteEngine On
# Fix trailing slash problem
RewriteCond %{ENV:SCRIPT_URL} ^/~[^/]+
RewriteRule ^$ /scsc/ [R,L]
# END WordPress
And it does remove the ~username, however obviously I need it to work without the / at the end of the url.  I have no idea how to change .htaccess files except by copying and pasting code from somewhere!
Thanks

You need to replace 'scsc' in that rewrite rule with 'sitename' (the subdirectory name for your site). That value was scsc in the thread you copied from. Smiley
