404 Not found


#1

Hello, I try to start with cloud flare, but it doesn’t work. I have the free version and I changed the name servers and this seems to be all right. But trying to visit my website, there will be only this message:
404 Not found
The requested URL / was not found on this server

So, what is the mistake?
Thank you.

That’s not enough information to go on. A 404 because of Cloudflare is quite rare, and is coming straight from your server.

What’s the URL?


#3

www.tierefotografieren.de

That is a domain to find out how it could work. With the domain www.lykkebringer.de it didn’t work either, but that domain needs to be online, therefor I changed the nameserver back.


#4

Go to DNS settings here and change www.tierefotografieren.de to :grey: and see if it works. That should bypass Cloudflare. Let us know what happens.


#5

No, it doesn’t work and I see the same error.


#6

Then it’s an issue with your server. Or maybe you have the incorrect IP address in Cloudflare’s DNS, though that’s unlikely. Those are the only two possibilities at this point.


#7

Okay. Thank you. What issue could that be?


#8

Maybe there’s nothing in your web directory. The server usually looks for index.html, index.htm, or index.php. If none of them are there, it might return a 404.


#9

Of corse there is the Index.html - the Directory is not empty!!


#10

Check your server logs. They should show which request had the 404.


#11

I’m not 100% sure, but if you use Apache, it might be case sensitive. Index.html will be ignored, while index.html is found.
(since you wrote Index.html instead of index.html)
