Default Custom Error Pages

Ever get a complaint from a customer or visitor about broken links or error pages which seem to randomly appear on your site? Here's the solution... make your own custom error page which will forward visitors to any page you specify. You may choose to send them to your home page, or perhaps a special information page asking them to notify you of the problem.


Make your custom page and upload it to your server. Look on your server for a file called .htaccess using your FTP program. If you do not find one, create a new file in notepad and name it .htaccess -- upload this file to your server's root directory.
Now, you will need to add a special line to the file to make your custom error page work. Click on the file on your server and click the "edit" button. Add the following text to a new line:

That's all there is to it! This "may" not work on some servers, but you never know until you give it a try.

No More Errors!

Default Custome error pages

We've all seen the dreaded Error 404 message - the result of broken links and mistyped URLs. You've probably been on some websites where the error pages are customised with their own logo and message, and I'm sure you'll agree that it looks far more professional than the standard one.
In this article we'll show you how to use Apache's .htaccess file to make your own customised error 404 pages.
