Html works like I have the index, and the pages subfolder. I want to link from index to the about page in the pages subfolder. I'd type something like <link href="page/about.html"/> and the big button that says 'about' would direct to that page. Instead, when I load the updated webpage, I get a 404 error and it says the page doesn't exist.
it gives me the following when I use the about link:

The requested URL /About.html was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


Using the cpanel website manager, what do I need to do to get it to go to the correct folder and page, and open. Then, how would I do the reverse and have those pages link to the root folder, when ../ doesn't seem to work.

It looks like an issue with the link used in your HTML coding. Try using the full link. EX:

Code:
http://domain.com/path/to/file.html
Thank you.

I've changed that several times and no modifications to the name change the error
Your comment makes no sense. If neither the file nor the link to the file use About.html with that cap A, then why would the error be the same? And if the error is the same, and it clearly mentions a cap A, then there's something else going on there somewhere.

Could it be that there's another page with the cap A still being used in the link that you have not updated yet, and you've clicked it while clicking around and generated the error?

Just guessing of course.
