Well, you named the file something in camelCase, right? and the server then
forces it to be lowercase. But your links, in your html files, will still
be camelCase, right? Since, on case sensitive file systems,
filename<>fileName<>FileName<>FILENAME, your link will point to the
nonexistent file named fileName, while the file you uploaded is called
filename. This because the server renamed the file when you uploaded it.
