To resolve a 404 error in WordPress, you can try the following steps:
- Check the permalink settings: Go to the WordPress Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks and make sure you have the correct permalink structure selected.
- Refresh your website’s permalinks: Go to the WordPress Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks, change the permalink structure to a different option, save changes, then change it back and save changes again.
- Check if your .htaccess file is causing the problem: You can temporarily rename the .htaccess file in the root directory of your WordPress site and see if this fixes the error.
- Check for any broken links: Use a tool like Screaming Frog SEO Spider or Broken Link Checker to identify any broken links on your site that could be causing the 404 error.
- Create a custom 404 error page: You can create a custom 404 error page in WordPress by creating a template in your theme and redirecting 404 errors to it.
If these steps do not work, you may need to contact your hosting provider for further assistance.
