Default problem with tophat commnd directing bowtie indexes

here is the command I given. I directed bowtie indexes but not working

I downloaded hg18 index from bowtie ftp site and unzipped in index folder of bowtie by creating a sub directory hg18.
Hope I did every thing correct?

 tophat -r 200 /home/bogugk/rnaseq/software/bowtie-0.12.5/indexes/hg18 SL001_R00089_RHE011_01pgx2_F3.csfasta SL001_R00089_RHE012_01pgx2_F3.csfasta SL001_R00089_RHE013_01pgx2_F3.csfasta SL001_R00089_RHE014_01pgx2_F3.csfasta SL004_R00058_RHE015_01pgx2_F3.csfasta

FYI: I also exported index path to .bashrc by plaing this command in .bashrc
export PATH=$PATH:/home/bogugk/rnaseq/software/bowtie-0.12.5/indexes
Please let me know any suggestions.

As far as I know you don't create a subdirectory for each index. just place the 6 hg18 files in the indexes directory.

That is wrong

You should point the the bowtie-base, rather than the directory.

eg. something like
