IBM HTTP Server v7 - 404 custom error page - (WAS CE)
how are you?
I am presented with a problem, my client asked me to show some custom errors at the time the system is in maintenance or fallen.
When the HTTP Server receives a 503 error, I have no problem. The problem is when I have to show the same maintenance page and I find a 404 error.
This error is presented as follows, the architecture of the system is as follows:
-The HTTP Server v7 in a virtual machine, with load balancing for high availability. -In another VM I have WASCE 1 and WASCE 2. -In another VM, WASCE 3 and WASCE 4.
When the HTTP Server receives a 404 error, it displays the predefined Tomcat error message
Even trying to modify the httpd.conf file of the http server did not have any results.
It totally ignores things like "#ErrorDocument 404 /404maintenance.html" or any type of Rewrite Rule.
I found a tutorial that explains that modifying the web.xml file of catalina and placing an ej: myNewError404.html can be modified, since the tomcat default is arriving at the http server.
The problem is that when I do this, it stops showing me the default tomcat error message, but it shows me a blank screen. Obviously I'm not taking the route in the tag location.
<error-page> <error-code>404</error-code> <location>/myErrorPage404.html</location> </error-page>
This problem only happens when the service of any of the four WASCE are up, but the application is stopped.
I try to place my file everywhere, but without result. If someone has any help to solve a problem, thank you very much.
Very good start to the year for everyone!
