Apache 404 and .htaccess files
Posted on 2007-03-28
We have a bizzare problem which I hope somebody can shed some light on. We have a content management system which we built, which uses the apache error diective and a .htaccess to control the 404 errors produced by apache. Basically when a page / resource is not found, run a file and see if the user wants to create it.
Now the problem is that I believe the 404 errors are still produced by apache, so our rankings on google are going down the tubes.
My question is if we use the AccessFile Directive will apache still produce a 404 error even though we tell it to run another file?
