404 Not Found

Recommended Posts

My site/domain has been dormant for quite some time, but I am preparing to relaunch the site.

 

In preparation of relaunching, I have uploaded a couple of test files to my public_html folder. When I point my browser at the page, I receive the following message in the browser window:

 

 

404 Not Found

The server can not find the requested page:

www.mydomain.net/test_page.html (port 443)

Please forward this error screen to www.mydomain.net's WebMaster.

 

I created a test page thru c-panel, which "previewed" fine in the HTML Editor window, but when I pointed my browser at that page, I receive the same message.

 

Any ideas as far as what the problem might be?

 

Thanks.

That error, specifically the port number 443, indicates you accessed the URL using https://, but you do not have an SSL certificate for your site. You can avoid this by accessing it via http://, purchasing a SSL certificate, or using our Shared SSL. Please see http://www.totalchoicehosting.com/faq/support-ssl.html for more information on SSL.

Perfect. Thanks.

 

One follow up question - when looking for a solution to my question, I can across this post on the forum https://forums.totalchoicehosting.com/index.php?showtopic=43245&hl=%22404+not+found%22 and thought that it might address my problem. So I changes the index settings of the folder. It didn't make a difference, and your solution fixed everything. What should I set the index setting back to?

 

Thanks again.

If you want to change it back and are not sure, just go with the "Default System Setting" option, which should be the same as "Standard Indexing". If you don't want anyone to see your files select the "No Indexing" option.
