Custom 404 Page - Apache/Tomcat/Lucee

I have been trying to figure out how to create a custom 404 page, and am
having no luck.

In my application.cfc, I have:

Any clues?

a cflocation to a 404-Error-Page is not a good idea: the cflocation returns
a 302-Status-Code. In other words you would return a 302-Code, instead a
404.

I would make use of cfheader, and depending on your configurations your
front-end-webserver could serve a custom-error page.2016-07-26 10:06 GMT+02:00 <@sd1>:

following on from what andy said, you can add a status code to a cflocation;

as far as I know statuscode 404 in cflocation won’t work, that should throw
an error. cflocation is there to change location by 30x headers. This can
cause a 302/301 redirect to an error page that only shows a 404 content,
but no 404-Status-Code. That’s not good for SEO.

Better is to throw a cfheader with 404 status code followed by any content.
That can be created in many ways: include-files, functions, custom-tags,
but depends on setup of the front-end webserver. We use IIS, that is why I
really can’t recommend a way to set it up in apache.

We had problems with 404 error codes being interpreted as 200 OK Success in
the past: these page were indexed by search engines. That’s why it is
important to always check the status code with a browsers developers tool
(i.g. firebug) when delivering status codes. Sorry for not giving a better
help :/On Wednesday, July 27, 2016 at 10:01:13 AM UTC+2, Luke wrote:
