404 pages not working

Recommended Posts

We are migrating from a Rackspace Apache server to an Nginx server in AWS.  We have already switched over our dev and our test environments and were hoping to switch over the production environment tonight but there is an issue occurring in prod that isn't in dev or test.
All 404 pages that used to get the custom PL 404 page aren't working.  So for instance www.infousa.com/x gives a 404 in fiddler, but the custom PL 404 page doesn't show up.  
Since this site is not "live" yet to check out what I'm talking about you have to add the following to your hosts file: www.infousa.com  infousa.com
Then you can check a working page like www.infousa.com/sales-leads compared to www.infousa.com/x   Can anyone suggest what files or PL settings I might investigate to try and get the 404 page working again?

It isnt a PageLines setting or indeed a WordPress setting.


You just need to configure nginx properly. http://bit.ly/15LZ03m ;)

Well...our infrastructure team did a roll back of the files and then the 404 started working again.  So it seems to be something with the files.

Or your permalinks were not updated, and couldn't place files in proper context.  Did you infrastructure team try updating permalinks?

      In the social links Twitter shows 404 error in the API. Example:
      "GET http://urls.api.twitter.com/1/urls/count.json?url=http://www.webbdo.se/cybe…onday/&callback=jQuery1113017799108568578959_1449307004771&_=1449307004772 "
      This on all posts that have the "social links" and Twitter included.
      See example: http://www.webbdo.se/cyber-monday/
      How can it be fixed?

      Hello. Have you come across this problem? I'm building my website in google Chrome, and all my pages open. But if I (or someone else) uses Safari (maybe other browsers too?) the home page opens, but then when they click on a widget, the inked page shows my header and nav but a 404 Error symbol for everything else. Is there a plug in or something I can do to fix this?
      Thank You!

      we have sites builds with dms2 + wpml plugin for translation, in italian as main language (set as domain site), and english, french, german, etc. translations (set in subdirectory).
      We discover this issue with 404 pages (wich uses "nopost" section) on other languages:
      the "nopost" section function as needed for the main language ( example: http://www.hotelbaiadinora.com/sdghsrthrt) but gives a blank page in other languages (example: http://www.hotelbaiadinora.com/en/sdghsrthrt ).
      where is the problem? Can you help us to solve this?

      Hi guys,
      So I don't know what exactly is going on. But I get a "Error occurred: 404 - not found" whenever I try to visit any page on my website, except for the Homepage. Even though the pages are set up and published, I get this error.
      Any idea where it's coming from and how to fix it? Thanks!
