Creating custom pages for 404 (page not found) and 500 (internal server error) errors are super simple. In fact it’s so easy, it’s almost not worth a blog entry. But what the hell.
To get a custom error page rolling, create an
.htaccess file with the following:
ErrorDocument 404 /path/to/error/file.404.php ErrorDocument 500 /path/to/error/file.500.php
.htaccess file in the root directory of your website.
Now when people get a 404 or 500 error, they’ll be directed to your custom error page!
