Hi mi,

HTTP status code 404 stands for "Not found". This is a general error from web servers if you try to access any resource the web server cannot find.

This is usually a problem with wrong URLs or a misconfiguration of the web server, especially the document root for web pages etc.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
