Background image and sound not working

I realize you don't deal with web server problem but I have tried to put the
background image and sound in many possible ways but they are not working.
Here is how I install it:
config file and all other web files are is in /var/argus/
arguscgi is in /usr/local/apache/cgi-bin/
I tried putting "imgs" folder in /var/argus/ as well as /usr/local/apache/,
but both are not working.
Other than that Argus has been great. Your help is greatly appreciated!

We usually dont deal with web server problems, but your case seems
simple. Without seeing your relevant apache config, I'll take a stab:

your /imgs/ directory has to be at the same level as your /cgi-bin/

in other words if you have your argus web server root as:
and you have your arguscgi in
then your images should be in
and your sound shoud be in
