I recently have this mysterious problem that is bothering me.
I must firstly admit I am not an expert in configuring Error pages.
The problem is error 404 page works on some of the site and not for other site on my server. 404.shtml is already present as I added that using CPanel.
I tried tinkering with the .htaccess but I don't think it is the reason behind the problem because some of the site that has working 404 has no htaccess at all.
Checked out Frontpage Extension and they are not installed so that technology of Microsoft shouldnt be the problem.
What can be the problem here?
What you can do with Cpanel ------------------> |||||
What you can do with Cpanel XP+CpanelAPP -------> ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
It could be the other way around.. you probably have an ErrorDocument directive in your global settings in httpd.conf that throws up 404.shtml on a 404, but some sites have .htaccess that overrides that setting
Also whats your AllowOverride setting in httpd.conf? and where is the 404.shtml stored and what kind of permissions exist for taht file?
Just a thought
