Please enter your website URL for us to evaluate the Status Code on page.


What it is

The HTTP status code in the website header is a three-digit numeric value in the server's HTTP response, indicating the result of the request processing, such as successful execution (e.g., '200 OK') or an error (e.g., '404 Not Found').

How to fix it

If the status code is not 200 OK, the recommendations for fixing it depend on the specific status code. Here are some common codes and corresponding suggestions:

  • 404 Not Found: This status code indicates that the requested resource is not found on the server. Check the correctness of the URL, path, or filename. Ensure that the file or page exists on the server.
  • 500 Internal Server Error: This status code points to an internal server error. Check the server error logs for details and try to identify and fix the issue in your application code or server settings.
  • 403 Forbidden: This status code means you don't have permission to access the requested resource. Check file and directory access permissions on the server.
  • 401 Unauthorized: This status code indicates that authentication is required to access the resource. Make sure you provide the correct credentials.
  • 302 Found (or other redirects): This status code indicates a redirection. Check the target URL and ensure that the redirect is configured correctly.
A general approach involves analyzing server logs, reading error messages, and testing requests using browser developer tools. Depending on the specific status code and situation, additional steps may be required to identify and resolve the issue.
