BIRDTRAP.CGI: The Friendly & Flexible Error Handler for Apache
  • Released: January 3, 1999
  • By: BigNoseBird.Com
  • Price: Freeware
Now you can replace those boring errors such as NOTFOUND with any message you wish. The script also comes with a set of funny graphics to make your readers cherish the fact that something went wrong!
  • You can hopefully not see it in action here! But here are some demo links. Please note that you will not see the calling page since an actual error is not occurring.

    Error 400 Bad Request
    Error 401 Authorization
    Error 403 Forbidden
    Error 404 Missing
    Error 500 Server Configuration Error
    Unknown Error

  • View the Script (an easy way for my Mac friends to get the script!)
  • View the Readme File
  • View a sample .htaccess file
  • View a sample log file
  • Browse the Directory (Note: you can't run the scripts from the directory, view birdtrap.txt to see the script)
Be sure to upload the birdtrap.cgi file as ASCII if you are moving the script from either a PC or Mac to a Unix server. If you have problems with the script, please check out the Script Troubleshooting Page before writing.
