Custom Error 404 page...How?


Recommended Posts

I'm running osCommerce v2.2 RC2 through HostGator hosting. How can I change from the default HostGator 404 page to a customized 404 page?


HostGator tech support chat person said to just add " ErrorDocument 404 /index.php " to the top of the .htaccess file (I originally asked about redirecting to my homepage). Even doing this, I still got the HostGator default 404 page and wasn't redirected to my site's homepage.

I believe with hostgator they have an area on the admin panel where you can design a personal 404 and other error pages in a text editor.


If I remember correctly is creates an .shtml page which you can download and edit and replace.
