    I'm trying to add a background image in css to pull an image from the library directory, it is setup correctly, but the image will not show and if I direct link to it I receive a 403 permission error.


    Edit: I tested different locations, it doesn't matter where it is, that image always shows a 403 error.

    The library directory has a default .htaccess file that denies all:

    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all
    You should upload your image elsewhere. The library directory isn't meant for direct URL access.
