I got this error on my WordPress Blog:

404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request

 

These are the steps for fixing it, go to your permalink settings on the Dashboard of your WordPress Blog.

Next copy the custom string that you already have set.

Then set it to Default.

Visit your website and the page should be there now.

I hope this is helpful.

    Go in to your WP CP settings > permalinks

    Select the default.
    Once it’s fixed put it back how you had it.

    That is correct, to get it back to the original you have to put it back to the custom one you had chosen before.
