Hello members,

I am a complete newbie who did not know how to solve this problem. Whenever I try to open my website I always face a 404 error, and I don't know what it is. My site is not opening for the last 3 days. Please if anyone knows about how to solve it, tell me. I am really curious about it.

Thanks!

404 error means that whatever you're looking for is not there. If this is for your main page, such as domain.com, most likely the index.php or index.html is missing.

Hello,
404 error indicates that the server is not able to find requested resource. These types of links are called as broken links or dead links. The solution to this problem is "301 redirect". Is is a code that tells browser that the content is now transferred to another URL.

Hi Jenny,

Basically as others have said a 404 error means that the server can't find the actual page that the user is looking for.

There are a lot of different reasons why you might be getting this error, the simplest and most obvious is that the file has been deleted and isn't there, but if it is a dynamic site using WordPress or another Content Management System then it might not be that simple or obvious.

To really be able to help in any way, the first question is - Is it a WordPress site, or using another CMS, or just a basic site with static html files?

A 404 error indicates that the page you requested is not available. Most likely, the index.php or index.html for your main website, such as domain.com, is missing.

The HTTP 404 Not Found response code indicates that the server was unable to locate the requested resource. Links that lead to a 404 page are sometimes referred to as broken or dead links. A 404 status code just shows that the resource is unavailable; it does not tell whether the absence is temporary or permanent.

Hello,

A 404 error indicates that the page you are attempting to access cannot be found. A 404 error may appear due to a website problem, the page being moved or deleted, or you typing the URL incorrectly.

In addition to these reasons mentioned above, maybe there is something wrong between "HTTP" and "HTTPS" which will also take a 404 error.You can check this.

The simplest and easiest way to fix your 404 error code is to redirect the page to another one. You can perform this task using a 301 redirect.

It's definitely a problem not with the server, but with your website. Try to remember, maybe you did something in admin-panel, or in the web hosting.

Hello lindamed,

The '404 not found' error is an HTTP code that occurs when the server cannot find the file or page requested by the user. This error occurs when your browser cannot find the requested page. The 404 error code indicates that your browser can't locate the page you're trying to access.

If you're experiencing the above error code for your site, here are a few things you can do to fix the issue,

Modify .Htaccess file:

You must edit the .htaccess file and add a code snippet at the top. You can do this from cPanel > File Manager.

Code:
# BEGIN WordPress
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
# End WordPress
Setup a 301 Redirect:

If you have changed the URL of any specific page and haven't redirected it, it's time to redirect the old URL to your new URL. You can use a plugin to set up a 301 redirect by following the steps below,

  • Firstly, you must Install the Redirection Plugin from WordPress.org.
  • Now, navigate to WordPress Dashboard.
  • Then, click Tools > Redirection.
  • Lastly, complete the setup and Add new redirection.

Now, go to your browser to check whether the website is working and If the error has been resolved. Hence, I hope the fixes above help you resolve the 404 error for your site.
