    404 Error

    A 404 error means “not found”. This is usually the page you get when you make a mistake spelling page name in a site, or if the page is deleted or moved. The problem is that the standard 404 page is ugly and unhelpful. Such error pages provide negative user experience and can harm the reputation of the supporting sites providing reference links for such content.

    The HTTP 404 Not Found Error means that the webpage you were trying to reach could not be found on the server. It is a Client-side Error which means that either the page has been removed or moved and the URL was not changed accordingly, or that you typed in the URL incorrectly.

    404 error message is generated due to one of the below reasons -

    1. Due to incorrect file/directory permission.
    2. Due to missing file.
    3. Due to missing file/directory or contents.
    4. Due to uploading the contents on incorrect path.

    You can avoid the 404 error message by setting the proper file/directory permission, uploading the correct contents on correct path.

    A 404 error is an HTTP status code that means that the page you were trying to reach on a website couldn't be found on their server. The 404 Not Found error might appear for several reasons even though no real issue exists, so sometimes a simple refresh will often load the page you were looking for. The most common method is to retry the web page by pressing F5, clicking the refresh/reload button, or trying the URL from the address bar again.

    When such a status code is returned, it means that the client and the server in the computer network had a successful communication but the server could not find what was requested.

    In Internet Explorer, the message The webpage cannot be found usually indicates an HTTP 404 error but a 400 Bad Request error is another possibility. You can check to see which error IE is referring to by checking for either 404 or 400 in the title bar.

    404 Errors are required to be fixed as earlier as possible. If the page has a new URL, then it is to be replaced with the old one and if you are not going to continue with the webpage, it should be removed.
