you can't upload to a remote server unless you use ftp. the way you have it set up is for uploading locally to a local directory. i have never been able to upload to a remote server like that.

can u plesse guide me how to do i dont matter if its on remote server or loacl server as long as users can upoad there images to the disk(with security in mind) and then i should be able to display these images on my web page,may u plz tell me if its ok to have the image folder on your server
thanking you
