Purpose

To customize the 404 error page served by Crowd, in order to better fit the design of your site.


Solution 

  1. Navigate to the following path on Crowd Server.

    <crowd-install>/crowd-webapp/WEB-INF/web.xml
  2. Add the following snippet at the bottom of the page, but before the </web-app> tag.

    <error-page>
     <error-code>404</error-code>
     <location>/404.html</location>
    </error-page>
  3. Create a new file 404.html under <crowd-install>/crowd-webapp/. We can use any HTML script like following to modify the custom page.

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <body>
    
    <p>Modified 404 page</p>
    
    </body>
    </html>

    Restart Crowd.
