  • Re: getting HTTP error 404 for no reason

    Jan 29, 2013 09:47 PM|gib99|LINK

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions.

    [quote=fab777]You've got no DNS record for www.mm-thory.com

    There shouldn't be any "mm-thory" anywhere. Where did you find that? How can I correct it?

    [quote=Rick Barber]What is the line in your web logs when you hit the page and get the 404?

    This is the last line in the log after trying to visit the site:

    2013-01-30 02:08:48 GET /pdt.htm mods 80 - Mozilla/5.0+(compatible;+Googlebot/2.1;++http://www.google.com/bot.html) 404 0 2

    I don't know what it means (or why it says 2:08--it's 7:23 PM here), but the error code seems to be 404 0 2.

    The site that you linked me to says: "404.2 - Web service extension lockdown policy prevents this request."

    All my web service extensions are set to "allowed" though.

    Come to think of it, I used to have a file called pdt.htm in the mm-theory.com website which I would sometimes reference as "pdt.htm?mods" (it's the "GET /pdt.htm mods" portion of the line above that made me think of this). If this is what it is, why would it still be referencing this file, and how would I correct it?
