Creating a 404 error page for OpenCart
Creating a custom error page for 404 errors in OpenCart can help you secure your shopping cart. Anyone attempting to access something inappropriately will be automatically re-directed to this page. It's best practice to provide links back to your store, in case someone reached this page in error.
Simply create a 404.html file in the root of your OpenCart store. You can use file manager to do so. Please see our article on using File Manager in cPanel for more information.
Here's a simple sample 404.html page we created:
<html> <body> <p>The page you have requested does not exist. Please click on the link below to return to the store's home page:</p> <a href="/index.php">Return Home</a> </body> </html>
- Log into cPanel
- Click on the File Manager icon
- Navigate to the root directory of your shopping cart
- Click on new file in the upper left
- Name the file "404.html"
- Open the newly created file with the code editor
- Paste the code above into the file
- Click "save"
