Subject Re: [users@httpd] Can I return a 404 for a file that is also the ErrorDocument?
Date Mon, 09 Jul 2018 15:23:49 GMT
I may be missing something here but in the case where 404.html is directly
requested as /404.html, the 200 is the correct response code because the file
was found and served.  404 means that the file was not found.
regards,
