Need to know about the custom 404 page. Whenever I try typing a wrong page name, I get the IE 404 page (not even 000webhosts’). Have gone back and tried it 1000 times as the FAQ describes (and it did work for me once upon a time), but no dice. I have the error.php & .htaccess in the same folder (public_html, and we’re not allowed to upload anything above that level - which would be the root directory, correct?), but nothing is working out.


#3

There is already, click on “custom error page” in the list.


#4

Paste this in your .htaccess:

ErrorDocument 404 /error.php

If that doesn’t work, tell me your sites address and what is in your .htaccess file.


#5

site URL: http://promodrone.com/

.htaccess contents:
ErrorDocument 403 /error.php
ErrorDocument 404 /error.php
ErrorDocument 405 /error.php
ErrorDocument 408 /error.php
ErrorDocument 500 /error.php
ErrorDocument 502 /error.php
ErrorDocument 504 /error.php

:confused: As said before, this worked for me once upon a time.

@chanh - that little tutorial was followed (LITERALLY) 1000 times to no effect (it was the 1st resource that I scoped out here), so your suggestion is invalid in my case, chief (I bother to search BEFORE posting).


#6

The idea is there! If it did not work for you then there might be some debugging required.


#7

:confused: and you mean WHAT by this statement? And, @chanh, not to sound in the leastways snarky, but, if you read the quote that I echoed for a second time

Have gone back and tried it 1000 times as the FAQ describes (and it did work for me once upon a time)

I think that my debugging attempt had well-run its’ course, don’t you? And if it didn’t work after the THOUSANDTH time, what makes you think that any more efforts would be in order? :rolleyes: Oh, btw, you have any other ideas on what could be at the source of the problem?


#8

Try reloading your account. Remember to back everything up first.

[FONT=Fixedsys]http://www.000webhost.com/forum/faq/11055-what-email-sending-limit.html#post53724

Reading the above thread, I see that it has a variety of opinions. Having had my account banned from e-mail (or maybe I was on server 37?), I contacted customer support with the same question. The answer I got was 5 e-mails in an hour or 30 e-mails in a day. Which of the following is true:

  1. Has the e-mail sending limit changed to 30 e-mails in 5 minutes or 100 e-mails in an hour?, or
  2. Was the customer support wrong?, or
  3. Is the thread above wrong?

Furthermore, is there a place to check how much e-mails had been sent already? I have a site where people can send something along the lines of greeting cards to each other. At this point, I had been able to track down a problem when the greeting cards contain non-latin letters. In an attempt to fix the problem, I would need to try applying various patches, and after each one e-mailing myself to see whether the problem is resolved. Doing so, I would not want to exceed the limit, all the while keeping in mind that people might send a greeting card to each other while I am doing this. So if there is a place to check how much e-mails had been sent already, I would be able to make a script that would postpone the sending of an e-mail if this limit is exceeded.

No more than 30 emails per 5 minutes and no more than 100 emails per hour.

No, unfortunetly there isn’t a way to check how many emails have been sent that I’m aware of.
