Help! What is my web address path to my images stored on filemaker server 13?

Your post

Apologies, completely new to FM and I am helping a friend who has her FM already set up.

I am accessing the data to the fm db via jdbc call, when I get the data from the container field, this is what I get:

REMOTE:ANNA B. 1.JPG SIZE:1224,1632 JPEG:SECURE/EH/02/EA11DB21/FF884E77/485C00FB/2DA2

So I went to ensure the data is where its supposed to be on Filemaker server:

Library/Filemaker Server/Data/Databases/RC_Data_FMS/MY_FM/jumpstart/SECURE/EH/02/EA11DB21/FF884E77/485C00FB/2DA2

A couple of questions:

1) I see the path but I don't see any images in that path on the Mac

2) My question is how do I get this image via the web url?

http://<ip address>/<PATH TO IMAGE>

What would be the <path to the image>?

 

I read in the documentation we would have to physically copy the items to the Library > Filemaker Server > http server > htdocs directory which does not seem right seem that would be a poor design especially for  a database that can have a lot of images and changes.

Can someone help me out here?
