I know this thread has been discussed a lot on the web and here, and I tried almost every method, but I still have the same problem.

This is my URL on my local server (MAMP)


And I tried to insert a wrong path to take me to the wrong page, like below:


Instead of taking me to the error page, it displays:

Not Found The requested URL /hellothere/eiurgiuerib was not found on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while attempting to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

My 404 page is in the error directory. And in my .htaccess file I included this:

ErrorDocument 404 /Error/404.php

  • php
  • apache
  • .htaccess
  • status-code-http-404

  • Veuillez ne pas utiliser d’images pour afficher des données textuelles. Il dit que /Error/404.php est introuvable – Vérifiez l’orthographe, la casse et les autorisations de répertoire et de fichier. Vous devriez pouvoir invoquer 404.php à partir de l’adresse du navigateur — est-il trouvé ?

The ErrorDocument directive, when a local URL path is provided, expects the path to be fully qualified from DocumentRoot. In your case this means the actual path to the ErrorDocuments

ErrorDocument 404 /hellothere/error/404page.html

  • Another thought, if in my index.php page I just add this line of code ” header(“HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found”); ” It won’t take me to the 404 page, why?

  • Thank you very much, I was repeatedly trying to beat this in apache from the server root not the document root.

When we apply the local URL, the ErrorDocument directive expects the full path of the DocumentRoot. So,

ErrorDocument 404 /yourfoldernames/errors/404.html
