FTP - Image not updating

Post by vipwoody » Tue Nov 27, 2007 12:03 am


I am new to Yawcam, it is an amazing piece of software.
Anyway, I am having some problems. I edited the setting of the FTP in the software to automatically update a picture called "webcam1.jpg" on my server and then show it on an html file on my website.

When doing all that, I noticed that the picture is not updating even though the page is updating every 10 seconds. I then sent the link to some of my friends and they saw the picture but with another time frame.

The conclusion, I can only see the first picture only and then it stops updating.
Please help me figure it out.

Here is my HTML code.
What do you think is the problem?
Thanks in advance.

<title>xxxxx's Webcam</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<meta http-equiv=Refresh content="10">

<p><font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">(Reloads every 10:th second...)</font></p>
<p><img border="0" src="webcam1.jpg"></p>
<p><a href="http://www.xxxxxx.com" target="_blank"> <font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">www.xxxxxx.com</font></a></p>

Go to my webcam page and look at my html code. In Firefox you do this with the menu item View|Page source. In Internet Explorer it is something similar.

My Yawcam does an ftp upload of the file webcam.jpg very 10 minutes. And my webpage is set to refresh every 60 seconds.

There is also a javascript routine which allows the user to zoom in on the image by clicking on it, but you don't need this.
