I thought my website was properly serving up 404 pages until I ran the server header checker [searchengineworld.com]. The results of this tool showed that I am serving up 200 [ok] messages instead of 404 messages.

My website is running on Apache Version 1.3.27. I checked Apache's ErrorDocument documentation [httpd.apache.org], and it appears that I have set everything up properly in my .htaccess file.

Here is the line that is in my .htaccess file:

ErrorDocument 404 /custom404.asp

Does anyone have any suggestions?

VictorE,

You might want to check your custom404.asp script and make sure that it does not explicitly change the server response header itself.

You ErrorDocument directive looks correct.

My host says this problem with server headers is caused by a limitation or configuration issue with ChiliSoft ASP.

Has anyone else had any experience with this?

Thanks!
