  2.  Clear Cache: Sometimes, a 404 error can be temporary, Remove your browser data and history and refreshing the page may resolve it.
  3. .htaccess issue-you might have incorrect coding in your .htaccess file. We recommend renaming that file to .htaccess-backup and refreshing the site to see if anything changes.

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On

5. Report the issue: If you believe the 404 error is a mistake or if you repeatedly encounter it on different pages of the website, you can contact the website administrator or support team to notify them of the problem.

It’s important to note that a 404 error is a client-side error, meaning it originates from the user’s end, rather than a server-side error. However, it typically indicates that the requested page or resource is not available on the server.
