    Hi Tony,

    If this is a newly created domain with fresh DNS transfer done, you might be experiencing propagation. I can't duplicate the 404. I can see a page that gives you lots of environment details... no 404:

    One line on the page: /home/zimbabwe/public_html/cgi-bin/

    I cannot see any issues at the present time. If you're using Windows XP, open up a command prompt by clicking on Start -> Run... and typing "cmd" and hitting OK.

    Once the prompt is up, issue this command: ipconfig /flushdns

    If you're on Vista, you will need click on the Windows Button -> Type 'cmd' in the search box and when you see the cmd executable, right-click it, "Run as Administrator..." and then issue the ipconfig /flushdns command.

    I really think this is a cache issue, not exactly a server issue as I can see everything fine. :)

    I hope this comes through as good news my friend! :)

    Let me know if you have any follow-up questions.

    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
