I am new to using Magento other than basic data entry but I cannot figure out how to change the header logo on my current magento skin. I even tried to do it on the cpanel with no success...how do I change it?

For changing logo goto


upload your logo image in images folder of your theme

Now in admin section goto

System->Configuration->General-Design->Header and in Logo Image Src

give your image name.


You can find the call for the logo img source in your themes header.phtml file. In this file you will find:

<img src="<?php echo $this->getLogoSrc() ?>" alt="<?php echo $this->getLogoAlt() ?>" class="large" />
<img src="<?php echo $this->getLogoSrcSmall() ?>" alt="<?php echo $this->getLogoAlt() ?>" class="small" />

The getLogoSrc() function is looking for a value in system/configuration/design/header/logo_src. In this config you can define the path to your logo relative to your skin directory.
