A 404 error* is a server response code that tells the user that the server cannot find the requested data

    The main reasons for this error:

    • A 404 error occurs when a user requests a document from a web server that is not on disk. This is the most common error, and its cause is mostly an incorrect link

    If that is the case, all you have to do is to correct the error in the URL and the page/file you are looking for will appear instead of the one with the 404 error.

    • The site data is missing in the root directory.

    Make sure you use the path specified in section Root directory, namely that all the site's files are loaded in the folder ~/public_html/ domain_name_

    file

    • The data is not hosted on the server, or the CMS is not responding correctly to the user's request. To resolve the 404 error, determine how the site where the error was created (with or without a CMS)

    To solve the problem and the lack of a file .htaccess or lack of necessary directives for the CMS will help replace the current file .htaccess standard for this CMS. To resolve the error, go to the root folder of the site and create a .htaccess file or replace it with the following content:
