external css not found

I am using an external css file in a PHP file with:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="bower.css" />

This works fine.  I want to move the styple sheet to a common area so that all in-house web pages can be consistent.  I moved the file to /var/www/res/bower.css and changed the link to this:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/var/www/res/bower.css" />

The stylesheet has no effect now!  Does an external stylesheet have to be in the local directory?

OK, but that is the "real" on the server. If your homepage is located at:
/var/www/index.html

then you should type:
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/res/bower.css" />

Of course.  As far as the web server is concerned the "root" is /var/www (LAMP on Linux)  Similarly it would be inetpub... on IIS.

Thanks.

hielo,

I gave you a good rating.  It was a pretty basic question.  I thought good was good.

>>  It was a pretty basic question
IF you ask "What is 1+1" or "What is the derivative of ln(x)", if the answer is correct for either, then there is no reason to base your grade based on the complexity of the question. The maximum points for a question is tied to the letter grade. IF you offer 125 pts, the point distribution is:
A: 125 x 4 = 500
B: 125 x 3 = 350
C: 125 x 2 = 250
D: 125 x 1 = 125
So, if you don't give an A (for an asnwer that should have been an A), for every letter grade away from A, the expert would "loose" 125pts.

Excellent is always better than good.
