Get help with website error message (HTTP errors)

Hi everyone in this article I’m explaining about HTTP errors

Introduction:

HTTP errors are sent to your web browser from a website if a problem is encountered when trying to view a webpage. If the webpage can't be displayed, Internet Explorer will display either the actual error page sent by the website or a friendly error message built into Internet Explorer. Here are some of the most common errors and ideas for how to solve the problem that's causing them.

The following table lists the most common HTTP errors that Internet Explorer displays. For information about HTTP protocols, error codes, and causes, go to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) website.

Http Error Message:

v  The webpage cannot be found (HTTP 400):

Ø  Internet Explorer is able to connect to the web server, but the webpage can't be found because of a problem with the web address (URL). This error message often happens because the website address is typed incorrectly. Make sure the address is correct and try again.

v  The website declined to show this webpage (HTTP 403):

Ø  Internet Explorer is able to connect to the website, but Internet Explorer doesn't have permission to display the webpage. This can happen for a variety of reasons; here are some of the most common:

v  The webpage cannot be found (HTTP 404):

Ø  Internet Explorer is able to connect to the website, but the webpage isn't found. This error is sometimes caused because the webpage is temporarily unavailable (in which case, you can try again later) or because the webpage has been deleted.

v  The website cannot display the page (HTTP 405)

Ø  Internet Explorer is able to connect to the website, but the webpage content can't be downloaded to your computer. This is usually caused by a problem in the way the webpage was programmed.

 

Websites display HTTP errors in one of two ways: by showing a custom webpage or by sending a simple error number to Internet Explorer. If a website offers a custom webpage for the error, Internet Explorer will always display it. If a website sends a simple error number instead of a custom webpage, Internet Explorer will read the error number and display an error message that provides a bit more information than the number alone (these errors are also known as friendly error messages). Follow these steps to tell Internet Explorer to turn off these friendly error messages and simply display the error number sent by the website:

 

To turn off friendly HTTP error messages:

v  Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button. In the search box, type Internet Explorer, and then, in the list of results, click Internet Explorer.

v  Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

v  Click the Advanced tab, and then scroll down to the Browsing section.

v  Clear the Show friendly HTTP error messages check box, and then click OK.
