    What does 404/404.html in a .htaccess file stands for ?

    Hi,

    I have no idea about .htaccess configeration. I found this file configeration entry in the .htaccess
    Code:
     404/404.html
    on my web server in the root directory. What do I suppost to do ?

    I tried to delete it, but it seems like I can't save my homepage as index.html anyway.

    I put it back in and saved my hompage as 404.html, but doesn't help eather ???!!

    Thank you for your help !

    404/404.html would be a web page called 404.html inside of a 404 folder. It would be there to display whenever the web page entered can't be found.
