i have the following code

<cfif isdefined("form.picture") and len(form.picture)>
                            <cffile action="UPLOAD" destination="#expandPath('.')#\files\" filefield="form.picture" accept="image/pjpeg" nameconflict="MAKEUNIQUE">
                                                                  <cfif FILE.fileWasSaved>
                                  <cffile action="RENAME" source="#expandPath('.')#\files\#FILE.serverFile#" destination="#expandPath('.')#\files\#SESSION.Auth.UserID#.jpg">
                                    <!---<cfmail to="" from="#session.auth.email" subject="Uploaded Photo">
                                    --->
                                    <cfoutput>
                                    <table width="400">
                                          <tr>
                                                <td style="text-align:justify">The following image was uploaded by #session.user.username# to be used in the Organization Chart and as their managment photo for Carreer Planning</td>
                                                
                                          </tr>
                                          <tr>
                                                <td><img src="absolutepath"><td>
                                          </tr>
                                    </table>
                                    </cfoutput>
                                    <!---
                                    </cfmail>
                                    --->
                              </cfif>

which is on the development server, i would like the image path to be defined by the server so that the path does not need to be hardcoded, this way the same code will work on the development server and the production server

path needs to be: http://server.com/path/to/file.jpg

as the image needs to be part of a third party confirmation email

TIA

cgi.SERVER_NAME will give the current server name

That should do the trick. If thats not what you were looking for I may not understand your exact need so try to explain further.

that helps but is there another vaiable or method that will give you the current directory in the url format, kind of like GetDirectoryFromPath  but where the output is the server url of the current directory?

usually I set the path in the application file which are changed from dev server to production

<cfset application.baseWebPath = 'http://server_dev.com/path/to/'> <---on dev

<cfset application.baseWebPath = 'http://server.com/path/to/'>  <--on production

Therefore only need to change that appication variable and it will appropriately apply anywere used....

#application.baseWebPath#file.jpg
