					How To Understand (and Fix) HTML Errors

Why all the errors seem to have some strange number, not the true
explanation of what went wrong when you tried to get a website or
download your e-mail? But the numbers are the norm, and find out what's
wrong with your computer needs to dig a little deeper than we might
prefer. It is interesting that many errors have similar causes, or - at
least - such decisions.

Error 400

When you see a message that looks like "400: Bad Request" or, more
specifically: "HTTP Error 400 - Bad Request", you can trust what you see.
You request was defective in some way. When you enter a URL in your
browser sign on a computer that you request a page from a different
computer or server. When something is wrong in the URL you entered, it
can not load and it gives you an error.

While a typo, of course, the strong possibility of error 400, it is also
possible that the page you are trying to reach has been deleted, URL has
been copied down incorrectly or missing key elements. This site may have
been updated as well.

Error 401

"401: Unauthorized" means that you are not the person on the site hoping
to see when you tried to log in. Error 401 is an easy mistake - just
virtual doors slammed in your face on the web site security. If you do
not enter the Web site that requires users to enter a user name and
password, you'll get an error 401. If you have tried to enter, but the
server does not recognize your site, printing or other odd twist of fate,
you will not be able to continue, and you'll be looking Error 401 as
well.

Error 403

You naughty things! When you get a 403 error, it means that you tried to
access the site, which is absolutely, positively prohibited. Who knows
what webmasters are trying to hide behind a virtual brick wall you just
hit, but one thing is for sure - you are not going to go further with
this particular URL-address. At least, not yet.

You can click Error 403, and innocent, of course, but we must do
something wrong in the URL, or perhaps just trying to get to the site at
the wrong time of the day. This error does not mean that you did not do
anything with a sinister motive ... If you do something with the sinister
motive.

Error 404

You can see any number of unique 404 error, but they will have something
like "Error 404: Page not found." You will see a 404 error when trying to
pull up web pages, which is actually not on the server.
In very general terms, 404, presumably your fault, but in reality not all
messages appear Error 404 due to user error. Pages may not be available
on the website or you may be trying to reach a page, the site owner
removed or changed, and no one can blame that on you.

Error 408

Error 408 is a particularly frustrating stumbling block in the Internet.
You enter a URL or click on the link. And you wait. And you wait. And
then the site returns an error, and not the site you are trying to
achieve. This error 408 - you "Timed Out".

When you submit a request on the website and it does not load quickly
enough, the server gives. Instead of loading a site in question, it spits
out an error. Sometimes a quick update helps, but in other cases, more
radical interaction is required. To update your browser, click on the
arrow next to the address bar of the circular.

Resolve the error

While there are plenty of rooms attributed to various errors over the
Internet, many will have the same or similar solutions. If you do not get
on the site you are trying to achieve, the solution involves much detail
engineering.

Check the connections to the Internet

How quickly, make sure that you get full access to the Internet, pulling
up the search page and search for something random. If you get a result,
and you will be able to link to those sites, you can cross the faulty
internet from your list of possible problems. If you do not receive any
new websites, you would do well to reset the router and restart the
computer to make sure that you are fully connected to the Internet.

Check the obvious mistakes

Look at the address that you just entered and look for obvious errors -
long URL-address particularly difficult to dial correctly. If you missed
one letter or a point, you will not go far. Check also, especially in the
Error 403, where the passwords are encrypted, you do not have Caps Lock
is on. Also check that the Number Lock is set, as usual for me. If you
know of an honest, just correct it and try again. The solution can be so
simple.

Restart the computer

Although this is supposedly the Internet gives you trouble, not your
computer, it never hurts to restart your computer. When you restart your
computer, you may upgrade some critical software or reset the connection
to the router, so that your internet is not working properly, or at a
high speed. This is easy to fix, and worth a few minutes it takes.

Update your browser
If you notice that you have a lot of internet problems and seeing a lot
of questions spring, check to make sure that your Internet browser is
fully aware of. Your browser is probably set to automatically update as
new versions become available, but if you put off updating or missed
updates, you can get by going to Windows Update for Internet Explorer,
and by going to the Tools menu for Firefox and Chrome.

Update plugins

If your browser completely last date, make sure that the plug-ins, which
are commonly used in the course, as well. Among the common plug-in for
web stuff like ActiveX and Flash. You may see on the site to update the
plug-in, or you can manually update this by visiting the web site and
download the offending applications to update or install plugins. Firefox
offers a plug test page here, and to get ideas for what might be causing
the problem.

Check back later

Finally, if nothing else seems to work, you can always throw your hands
up and walk away. But do not forget to come back later. Often websites
have their own problems, that can cause these errors and just wait five
minutes it will be all you need to do in order for everything to work
properly again.
