    http 404 redirect custom page

    hi all

    if the page doesnt exist in website then i want to redirect the user to a custom page that displays the message about the page you needed is not available.

    Like at present i dont have "pen.php"

    if the user writes pen.php then he gets error 404 page cannot be found. i want to show my custom page instead.

    i tried writing with .htaccess
    Code:
    ErrorDocument 404 /error.php
    but it doesnt works.

    Are the permissions correct for the .htaccess file? It should be 644 I believe.

    If your error.php file is not in the documentroot, remove the leading slash from the rule.
