Last Modified: 2020-10-18
Hello Experts.
I have a simple issue, where the image which works locally but when I deployed onto the server the image doesn't show.
Local Path:

td.details-control {
    background: url(/All/Images/details_open.png) no-repeat center center;
    cursor: pointer;

Once deployed on server, it doesn't work. So for test purpose I added web url of the image and it works.

td.details-control {
    background: url('https://datatables.net/examples/resources/details_open.png') no-repeat center center;
    cursor: pointer;

What could be the issue, I have the image in the folder.
