ERROR 404 - PAGE NOT FOUND

Why am I seeing this page?

404 means the file is not found. If you have already uploaded the file then the name may be misspelled or it is in a different folder.

Other Possible Causes

You may get a 404 error for images because you have Hot Link Protection turned on and the domain is not on the list of authorized domains.

If you go to your temporary url (http://ip/~username/) and get this error, there maybe a problem with the rule set stored in an .htaccess file. You can try renaming that file to .htaccess-backup and refreshing the site to see if that resolves the issue.

It is also possible that you have inadvertently deleted your document root or the your account may need to be recreated. Either way, please contact HostGator immediately via phone or live chat so we can diagnose the problem.

Are you using WordPress? See the Section on 404 errors after clicking a link in WordPress.

How to find the correct spelling and folder

Missing or Broken Files

When you get a 404 error be sure to check the URL that you are attempting to use in your browser.This tells the server what resource it should attempt to request.

http://example.com/example/Example/help.html

In this example the file must be in public_html/example/Example/

Notice that the CaSe is important in this example. On platforms that enforce case-sensitivity example and Example are not the same locations.

For addon domains, the file must be in public_html/addondomain.com/example/Example/ and the names are case-sensitive.

Broken Image

When you have a missing image on your site you may see a box on your page with with a red X where the image is missing. Right click on the X and choose Properties. The properties will tell you the path and file name that cannot be found.

This varies by browser, if you do not see a box on your page with a red X try right clicking on the page, then select View Page Info, and goto the Media Tab.

http://example.com/images/banner.PNG

In this example the image file must be in public_html/images/

Notice that the CaSe is important in this example. On platforms that enforce case-sensitivity PNG and png are not the same locations.

404 Errors After Clicking WordPress Links

When working with WordPress, 404 Page Not Found errors can often occur when a new theme has been activated or when the rewrite rules in the .htaccess file have been altered.

When you encounter a 404 error in WordPress, you have two options for correcting it.

Option 1: Correct the Permalinks

  1. Log in to WordPress.
  2. From the left-hand navigation menu in WordPress, click Settings > Permalinks (Note the current setting. If you are using a custom structure, copy or save the custom structure somewhere.)
  3. Select  Default.
  4. Click Save Settings.
  5. Change the settings back to the previous configuration (before you selected Default). Put the custom structure back if you had one.
  6. Click Save Settings.

This will reset the permalinks and fix the issue in many cases. If this doesn't work, you may need to edit your .htaccess file directly.

Option 2: Modify the .htaccess File

Add the following snippet of code to the top of your .htaccess file:

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>
# End WordPress

If your blog is showing the wrong domain name in links, redirecting to another site, or is missing images and style, these are all usually related to the same problem: you have the wrong domain name configured in your WordPress blog.

How to modify your .htaccess file

The .htaccess file contains directives (instructions) that tell the server how to behave in certain scenarios and directly affect how your website functions.

Redirects and rewriting URLs are two very common directives found in a .htaccess file, and many scripts such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla and Magento add directives to the .htaccess so those scripts can function.

It is possible that you may need to edit the .htaccess file at some point, for various reasons.This section covers how to edit the file in cPanel, but not what may need to be changed.(You may need to consult other articles and resources for that information.)

There are Many Ways to Edit a .htaccess File

  • Edit the file on your computer and upload it to the server via FTP
  • Use an FTP program's Edit Mode
  • Use SSH and a text editor
  • Use the File Manager in cPanel

The easiest way to edit a .htaccess file for most people is through the File Manager in cPanel.

How to Edit .htaccess files in cPanel's File Manager

Before you do anything, it is suggested that you backup your website so that you can revert back to a previous version if something goes wrong.

Open the File Manager

  1. Log into cPanel.
  2. In the Files section, click on the File Manager icon.
  3. Check the box for Document Root for and select the domain name you wish to access from the drop-down menu.
  4. Make sure Show Hidden Files (dotfiles)" is checked.
  5. Click Go. The File Manager will open in a new tab or window.
  6. Look for the .htaccess file in the list of files. You may need to scroll to find it.

To Edit the .htaccess File

  1. Right click on the .htaccess file and click Code Edit from the menu. Alternatively, you can click on the icon for the .htaccess file and then click on the Code Editor icon at the top of the page.
  2. A dialogue box may appear asking you about encoding. Just click Edit to continue. The editor will open in a new window.
  3. Edit the file as needed.
  4. Click Save Changes in the upper right hand corner when done. The changes will be saved.
  5. Test your website to make sure your changes were successfully saved. If not, correct the error or revert back to the previous version until your site works again.
  6. Once complete, you can click Close to close the File Manager window.

English Ivy 1.2: Reaction Dimension

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series English Ivy

Indian female nurseThis is a continuation of the blog English Ivy 1.1 -- where we cover the 'Reaction Dimension' with the rest of the dimensional structures.

Reaction Dimension:
Thought Dimension Energy-Relationship Self-Forgiveness:

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to, charge the thought of seeing the party that called me in a medical scrub with a positive-energy experience -- as I connected the medical scrubs to success, and thus, see the party that called me as more 'stable' than me because she is successful, and because she is a female -- based on the belief that females are 'more stable' than males, from the perspective of being gentle, yet assertive in their approach within and as being more 'relationship-oriented'. Thus connecting the scrubs to a sense that the party that called me is proficient in particular medical and healing techniques based on the knowledge and information that was learned in school -- as I connected the acquisition of that knowledge and information through a process of being humble within the approach of 'studying' and learning the knowledge and information with ease. Within this, I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that most medical students and employees have a 'stability' within and as them (especially females) that is created from their relationships with words and memories being more quantumly integrated within them which, in turn, took them 'less memory' / experiences to understand, recognize, and formulate what it is that is is being seen, realized, and understood on a conscious level based on having a more 'alertness' in and as their physical body because of the stability of their external environment through and as the process of growing up -- which I connected to having a stable external environment to being exposed to more of an elite environment.

Imagination Dimension Energy Relationship Self-Forgiveness:

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that 'freedom' can exist within compromising who I am for the sake of manipulating reality to exist in energy-experiences. In this case, I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that I can be 'free' to exist as who I 'believe' I am through / within the mind based on the past, and how I formed and created 'energy-experiences' to the past with the party that called me on the phone, and thus, creating an 'energy experience' to and as imagining my agreement partner being 'absent' from the particular-specific moment so that I can replicate positive-energy experiences from the past when and as I was physically with the female friend / the party on the phone that called me, as I, within that moment imagined myself being with her and a couple of other friends at a college in the past -- as we were joking around and having a 'good time', and thus, wanting to bring this moment back 'here' -- instead of taking self-responsibility within the moment to look beyond the 'beauty' of it, and see how we are in-fact existing on a mind-level.

Back-chat Dimension Energy-Relationship Self-Forgiveness:

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to, within the back-chat of "Oh man, I can't talk to my female friend of mine like I want to because my agreement partner is with me.", I accepted and allowed myself to empower this particular back-chat, from the perspective of making it 'influential' / 'real' within my world and reality because of the particular thought and imaginative energy-relationships that I connected to it along with connecting the party on the other line to being a 'charmer' (seducer) based on her ethnicity as Indian. I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself , within this, charge the experience even more with 'desire' through and as taking my desire to be Indian, and amalgamate this energy-experience to my past experiences with the female friend that called me -- believing that if I have sex with her, within my lifetime, that I will be accepted by the entire Indian race, and in addition I will fulfill my desire to be Indian -- which firstly came from a memory within me when and as I was a child and seeing myself in that memory as a race that resembled the Indian race. Therefore within this, I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to manifest these energy-relationships in the form of a back-chat of anger, fear, and frustration -- angry that I cannot be the 'mind' within the particular experience, fearing to be self-honest based on the fact that she might 'react' and not like me anymore, and frustrated about being angry and fearful -- not seeing, realizing, and understanding that I am existing within these relationships -- not because of an external influence, but because of my acceptances and allowances to be limited to these particular relationship-patterns.

Reaction Dimension Self-Forgiveness:

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to exist within 'reaction' wherein I validate who I am as the mind within and as participating and defining myself within and as the 'energy relationships' of thought, imagination, and back-chat -- making these dimensions 'real' within and as me, as I accept and allow these dimensions to mold and shape me within and as reacting to my female friend on the phone -- rather than seeing myself as an 'equal' with her. Within this, I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to create relationships based on 'compromise' -- wherein I compromise myself to keep the relationship, on a superficial level, stable -- and never seeing, realizing, and understanding the dynamics of friction and conflict that are being played out, and suppressed on levels that I do not want to take responsibility to become aware of, and so within this, desiring to remain on a level of awareness that I am comfortable of, and not wanting to see, realize, and understand who I really am -- as what I have accepted and allowed myself to be and become -- because I made my reactions, within reacting to my female friend on the other line, the 'driving force' of the entire experience, instead of me directing the experience in equality and oneness.
