Error Message Problem


#1

I have been trying to set-up custom error messages for my domain but something is not working. For example, I’m trying to set it up for images.chaddux.com. I put a .htaccess file in the images folder that says:

Options -Indexes

ErrorDocument 403 /403.html
ErrorDocument 404 /404.html

For the 403 error, the custom page loads but the image on that page does not.
For the 404 error, I get the standard 404 error message, not my custom one.

The HTML and image files are there. I’ve also tried it on www.chaddux.com and it won’t work there either.

I use files titled:
notfound.html (404)
missing.html (403)

and they work fine with images included.

The custom 404 error looks fine from here:
http://images.chaddux.com/asdf


If you want useful replies, ask smart questions.

The image is showing fine here too, but damn that head is hard to spot :slight_smile:

Really? You can see it? I still cannot. I’m still getting the standard 404 message. Now, I’m really confused.

Yes, I can see both the custom 404 and 403 pages (The dogs behind the fence).

Try clearing your browser cache and trying again.

Edit:

For your information, I am using FireFox 1.5.0.7 under Windows XP Pro SP2. I just tried IE6 and the custom 403 page displays correctly, but IE shows its own 404 error page.
