 I'm on 7.4.1 which was upgraded from 6.2.x .  everything works fine except that any 404 error (anypage.aspx or blahblah.bad) gives a 200 okay response. 

If the request was for Error404.aspx  a 200 response would be okay, but when its a request for /blah/bad/test/admin and we get a 200 response that's not okay

I've tried this but to no avail. 


anyone else run into this? how do i fix this? 


thank you

So i was able to solve this (although admittedly not really how i wanted to ) 


I see in PageBase.cs where it should be setting the 404, but it doesn't seem to actually get triggered. 


I'm on version 7.04.01 


by adding the following into Default.aspx on line 866

//Added a 404 status if the page is the 404 error page 

if (Page.Title.IndexOf("Error404") > 0) Response.StatusCode = 404;


also needed the following web.config settings 


line 112


      <remove statusCode="404" subStatusCode="-1" />

      <error statusCode="404" prefixLanguageFilePath="" path="/Error404.aspx" responseMode="ExecuteURL"  />

      <remove statusCode="500" subStatusCode="-1" />

      <error statusCode="500" prefixLanguageFilePath="" path="/Error404.aspx" responseMode="ExecuteURL" />




line 206


    <customErrors mode="On">

      <error statusCode="404" redirect="/Error404.aspx" />

      <error statusCode="500" redirect="/Error500.aspx" />




seems like its not getting to Handle404Exception in PageBase.cs ,  when i try to attatch a remote debugger i keep getting "no symbols loaded" for most of the project.  not sure why as i added a path to the symbols locally, maybe i need to put them on the server and load from there ?
