A Thought…

The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage.

Error document maker for Apache servers

With errorpages, you can easily knock out error document pages usable in an Apache server. I have no idea if they would work in an IIS server, but should work in any server that supports <error number>.shtml files called upon that error's appearance.

C Source utility

The program, as shipped, produces 400.shtml, 401.shtml, 403.shtml, 404.shtml, 406.shtml, and 500.shtml files. They are ready to be placed in the root directory of your site (or could be placed elsewhere, with the appropriate entry in your .htaccess or similar file). The C code may be easily modified to change the list of error documents produced, or (less easily) the template for the output pages.

The program is controlled by a configuration file, named on the command line. This configuration file specifies things like the site name, business name, domain, webmaster email address, background color, and business logo. The last two items may be used to produce an error document that fairly closely matches the style of your site pages.

The whole purpose of errorpages is to provide a quick way to create similar-looking error document files for a number of errors, for a site, which is compatible with your site's appearance (at least, color and logo). Of course, you are free to customize the code to produce a set of error documents with a different flavor. We won't be offended.
