    Relative Path


    How can I make a relative path from my root folder to a subdomain?

    Say that I link my css with this path (css/style.css)

    How can I link the same stylesheet location relative like I did above?

    <link href="style_sheets/main_style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    would link from root to folder "style_sheets" and then to file "main_style.css".
    This would be described as drilling down (from a postion at the root into folder called "style_sheets").
    From a position inside a sub folder called "new_projects" which is inside a folder called "developements", the path would require drilling up first, to the root, then drilling down into the "style sheets" folder. Drilling up is denoted by "../" So the path for the second example would be:
    <link href="../../style_sheets/main_style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    Drill down "/"
    Drill up"../"

    Define "subdomain". If it's really a subdomain then you can't establish a relative link to it. If they are on the same physical host and the OS is Unix-like then you could use soft links (man ln) to tie them together through the file system rather than the protocol.
