Hi All

A school boy error no doubt, but if you dont know you dont know!  Any form I write in regular Domino previews in my browser (Chrome) perfectly, however a first trial X-Page errors with:

Error 404

HTTP Web Server: Item Not Found Exception

What have I done wrong?  Your help would be appreciated

What's your URL? If your page is called "thingum", the URL to open it must be:
      http: //domain/path/database/thingum.xsp

@Sjef - thanks for the thoughts Sjef, it is:

http://cote1.pdhook.local/TestX.nsf/Hello_World.xsp

Unfortunately that looks correct :(

And the obvious things, did you all check them? Domino R8.5.2 or higher? Spelling correct? Upper/lowercase?

If you want you can send me a test database, with a single XPage for instance, so I can test it here on our server.

Hi Sjef   I'm on 8.5.3 Upgrade Pack 1, thanks.    Spelling? well I did a 'preview in browser' from Designer so I can only assume it got the spelling correct! lol

The database is virtually blank with a single page to test, I am starting from basics to get the principle! I would appreciate you checking - please can I have your contact details?

Thanks   Nigel

Could this just be security. The xpage needs to be available to the public. Resources also need public access but I do not think you would get this error.

@jjphardy.  Thanks, but not security I am simply playing with a test page so have not published it with an A record. It is all inside my firewall

jjp probably hit the proverbial nail: do you have an entry Anonymous in the ACL, with at least Reader access? It works here after that change, I didn't do anything else...

Wow I feel foolish. I wasn't thinking ACL, just the setting "Available to Public access users."
I was trying to reproduce the error but could not.

Now the ACL makes sense.

Well I am now bemused!  I have anonymous set to Person Group with reader access. Attached is apdf print of my ACL.

I still get the same failure :(

I appreciate both of your help but this is driving me crazy!

OK, I have gotten over the foolishness. Especially since it may still be the current issue.

Your xpage may need to be available to public access if you are not logged into the server. Also any datasource(??).

Sometimes changes to the ACL take a while to be recognized. Try again in a few.

I never set the user type for Anonymous, and I always use a capital A, although that shouldn't kill the joy.

Is the database on a server? Or on local?

Changed to uppercase and I have a local and server - tried both  and the same issue, but a good thought  I will tell ADminP to process All and see what happens

Thanks both

It has little to do with AdminP.

Better stop and start the HTTP task.

Do you use a database called weblog.nsf, which stores a complete log of all http actions? That would permit you to find out how exactly the database is called.

the only difference now is the error fires up instantly, not pausing.  I will try the obvious - rebooting my client and try again!

Can you confirm that another database on the same server works? Like http://cote1.pdhook.local/otherdb.nsf ? So we know that the connection to the server is operational and to the intended server.

Can you make screenshots (jpg) of:
- the current ACL (just to see Anonymous in all its glory ;-)
- the address bar in the browser (the database isn't in a sub-directory I hope)
- the first tab in the Document Properties for the database (to verify the sub-directory)

As a matter of fact, all I did was that I changed the ACL, I replicated the db to the server and I opened the db from a browser.

I really appreciate this Sjef, thanks.   4 files attached and I am really hoping you find a 'silly' that I have done - I can't think of nothing else!

I appreciate your time Sjef

Nice!! Better get used to the fact that the Designer can move in mysterious ways... ;-)
