    When I try to upload a .jpg file to my website, it appears to upload ok but does not show up on my website. It does show up in cPanel in the public_html folder but it is still in .jpg format.
    How can I get it to change to html format, what step am I missing.

    Fetch moves file from place to place -- in this case from your Mac to the web server. Fetch doesn't author new files, such as HTML files. So if you want a new HTML file that refers to this .jpg file you would need to create that with a text editor or HTML editor.

    I should note that you should be able to view the .jpg file in your web browser all by itself by entering the right URL. The URL should be something like:


    where WEBSITE is the name of your site (e.g. and FILENAME.jpg is the name of the .jpg file you uploaded to the public_html folder.
