So I'm running an apache server on a turnkey linux, moving from wamp.

I transfered over and now images with a url of

"images/image_name.gif?rnd=1239383"

will not show up. however this does work

"images/image_name.gif"

So how do I allow query strings on urls for image files?

It works fine on my hosted Apache server.  Tell us about your turnkey Linux machine.

That wouldn't break the image.
You're moving from Windows to Linux? Linux file names are CaSe sensitive - are you sure you have the correct case on the images (including the extension)
Or post a link.

Dang! thanks for pointing out the obvious :)
In the html i had the file name extension in all caps..... lowercasing that fixed it. Thanks again.
