Custom Error Pages


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

The cpanel way of creating custom error pages is very unfriendly & restrictive.

I've created some custom error pages with images for my website without using the cpanel way.

How & where can I upload them to in my public_html folder, together with the images?

How should the html pages be named for this purpose?

 

TIA

Whizzylogic,

 

I can't answer your question directly, but I got round the problem by creating the file in cpanel, which saved it by default in my public_html folder - I then just edited the file externally (dreamweaver in my case) and everything worked happily :D

Andy's suggestion is good too. I don't recall if the .htaccess file has to be created or not though I don't think so. I should also mention that the .htaccess file is not visible using FTP clients but you should find it in your File Manager.

Which is a better technique?

 

.htaccess or the cpanel method with re-edit?

 

Alas, I manage to create a .htaccess file & got the custom errror pages up & running.

 

For the .htaccess technique, I learn that the following must be added to avoid exposing the .htaccess file.

 

<Files .htaccess>

order allow,deny

deny from all

</Files>
