Common Apache Server Error Codes
What Does a 304 Error Code Mean?
The 304 error is somewhat misleading. The
Apache Webserver logs it as an error, but it's really this. Someone
visits your site today, and tomorrow, they go back to your site. When
they do, their local system connects with your server, and then the
server tells the local machine that the
If you have your own domain name, then whenever someone types in a web address on your site for which there is no actual page, they will receive a generic 404 Missing Page error message.
You can customize the error page that comes up. Simply create a file named, "missing.html", and place it on your top-level directory. Our server will automatically display your custom page in place of the generic error message page.
When would someone enter a web address that has no corresponding web page? Here are some common cases:
Example. Make "missing.html" be a copy of the front page of your site. Note: If you do this make sure that you update your missing.html file every time you update your front page!
Suggestions. We recommend that you use absolute addressing (e.g., <a href = "http://www.yourdomain.com/page2.html">) rather than relative addressing (e.g., <a href = "../page2.html">) for all references made on your "missing.html" page. If the missing page is in a subdirectory of your site, our server will display your missing.html page as though it were located on that subdirectory, which would screw up all the relative addressing references, creating missing images, broken links, etc.
