Subject [users@httpd] problems with .htaccess and customizing error404
Date Thu, 05 Aug 2004 18:27:17 GMT
I tried to customize my error404 page. I will say exactly what I did, and 
someone can tell me what I did wrong.

Creating .htacess
1) I opened notepad.
2) Under file name I typed ".htaccess" (including quotes). Under file type I 
put all files. Encoding was ANSI
3) When a looked at the file it said it was a .htaccess file, not .txt or 

The Rest
1) I put this exact line in the .htaccess file on one line and everything. 
the .htaccess is blank except for this:

ErrorDocument 404 /custom404.php

Custom404.php is my customized error page.

2) I put the .htaccess file in my main directory.
3) I access myserver/nofile.php and still got the default error message.

Thanks in advance
