    Hey guys I'm goin nuts with this problem. I registered a domain with godaddy. I then set up a hosting account that is using cpanel. I've looked up solutions and a lot of people say I should set up Hotlink Protection but the only problem is that my cpanel has NO SECURITY SECTION, so I have no idea how to do that. Second I'm wondering if wordpress can see my pictures, because softaculous installed wordpress in a www/ folder instead of in the main directory. If I move everything out of there and onto the main directory, do you think wordpress will be able to find my images?

    The weird thing is that right after I set it all up I tried uploaded a header in my custom theme's header section and IT WORKED! The next day I tried again and all the images stopped working.

    Another weird thing is that since I couldn't get the header to work I was mad and decided to write in the header picture into the stylesheet.css and it worked!!!

    My problem is that everytime I upload an image I don't wanna deal with the code. I just want it to work like it should. Any suggestions?

    I try to copy the url where wordpress says the image is and I get a 404 :(

    Here's what I get when I copy the image url directly from cpanel file manager

    I can view the file in the file manager, but you can't view it on the web :(

    Ok so I was trying to fix this again and accidently destroyed my website. I changed the WordPress Address (url) and the website went to poop. How do I change the address back if my website is not working?
