Which setting pushes 404 eror in a separate template page?
An example: Not Found The requested URL was not found on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
When I moved WP installation to another server it shows simple:
Not Found The requested URL was not found on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
But 404.php is not executed.
To fix the issue with the 404 error page not displaying correctly in WordPress after moving to a new server, consider these steps:
Check .htaccess File: Ensure it’s correctly configured for WordPress. This file controls how WordPress handles permalinks and errors.
Server Configuration: Verify with your hosting provider if any specific server settings are needed for WordPress error handling.
Theme Check: Switch to a default WordPress theme to see if the 404 page works, indicating a possible issue with your current theme.
Test Plugins: Disable all plugins and then re-enable them one by one to identify any conflicts.
File Permissions: Ensure proper file permissions for WordPress files, particularly the 404.php template.
