Why am I seeing this page?

404 means the file is not found. If you have already uploaded the file then the name may be misspelled or it is in a different folder.

Other Possible Causes

You may get a 404 error for images because you have Hot Link Protection turned on and the domain is not on the list of authorized domains.

If you go to your temporary url (http://ip/~username/) and get this error, there maybe a problem with the rule set stored in an .htaccess file. You can try renaming that file to .htaccess-backup and refreshing the site to see if that resolves the issue.

It is also possible that you have inadvertently deleted your document root or the your account may need to be recreated. Either way, please contact your web host immediately.

Are you using WordPress? See the Section on 404 errors after clicking a link in WordPress.

How to find the correct spelling and folder

Missing or Broken Files

When you get a 404 error be sure to check the URL that you are attempting to use in your browser.This tells the server what resource it should attempt to request.


In this example the file must be in public_html/example/Example/

Notice that the CaSe is important in this example. On platforms that enforce case-sensitivity example and Example are not the same locations.

For addon domains, the file must be in public_html/addondomain.com/example/Example/ and the names are case-sensitive.

Broken Image

When you have a missing image on your site you may see a box on your page with with a red X where the image is missing. Right click on the X and choose Properties. The properties will tell you the path and file name that cannot be found.

This varies by browser, if you do not see a box on your page with a red X try right clicking on the page, then select View Page Info, and goto the Media Tab.


In this example the image file must be in public_html/cgi-sys/images/

Notice that the CaSe is important in this example. On platforms that enforce case-sensitivity PNG and png are not the same locations.

404 Errors After Clicking WordPress Links

When working with WordPress, 404 Page Not Found errors can often occur when a new theme has been activated or when the rewrite rules in the .htaccess file have been altered.

When you encounter a 404 error in WordPress, you have two options for correcting it.

Option 1: Correct the Permalinks

  1. Log in to WordPress.
  2. From the left-hand navigation menu in WordPress, click Settings > Permalinks (Note the current setting. If you are using a custom structure, copy or save the custom structure somewhere.)
  3. Select  Default.
  4. Click Save Settings.
  5. Change the settings back to the previous configuration (before you selected Default). Put the custom structure back if you had one.
  6. Click Save Settings.

This will reset the permalinks and fix the issue in many cases. If this doesn't work, you may need to edit your .htaccess file directly.

Option 2: Modify the .htaccess File

Add the following snippet of code to the top of your .htaccess file:

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
# End WordPress

If your blog is showing the wrong domain name in links, redirecting to another site, or is missing images and style, these are all usually related to the same problem: you have the wrong domain name configured in your WordPress blog.

How to modify your .htaccess file

The .htaccess file contains directives (instructions) that tell the server how to behave in certain scenarios and directly affect how your website functions.

Redirects and rewriting URLs are two very common directives found in a .htaccess file, and many scripts such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla and Magento add directives to the .htaccess so those scripts can function.

It is possible that you may need to edit the .htaccess file at some point, for various reasons.This section covers how to edit the file in cPanel, but not what may need to be changed.(You may need to consult other articles and resources for that information.)

There are Many Ways to Edit a .htaccess File

  • Edit the file on your computer and upload it to the server via FTP
  • Use an FTP program's Edit Mode
  • Use SSH and a text editor
  • Use the File Manager in cPanel

The easiest way to edit a .htaccess file for most people is through the File Manager in cPanel.

How to Edit .htaccess files in cPanel's File Manager

Before you do anything, it is suggested that you backup your website so that you can revert back to a previous version if something goes wrong.

Open the File Manager

  1. Log into cPanel.
  2. In the Files section, click on the File Manager icon.
  3. Check the box for Document Root for and select the domain name you wish to access from the drop-down menu.
  4. Make sure Show Hidden Files (dotfiles)" is checked.
  5. Click Go. The File Manager will open in a new tab or window.
  6. Look for the .htaccess file in the list of files. You may need to scroll to find it.

To Edit the .htaccess File

  1. Right click on the .htaccess file and click Code Edit from the menu. Alternatively, you can click on the icon for the .htaccess file and then click on the Code Editor icon at the top of the page.
  2. A dialogue box may appear asking you about encoding. Just click Edit to continue. The editor will open in a new window.
  3. Edit the file as needed.
  4. Click Save Changes in the upper right hand corner when done. The changes will be saved.
  5. Test your website to make sure your changes were successfully saved. If not, correct the error or revert back to the previous version until your site works again.
  6. Once complete, you can click Close to close the File Manager window.

Truck Washing Chemicals

Truck Washing Chemicals That Do The Work!

Truck Washing Chemicals from Sun Brite SupplyEveryone knows that our truck washing chemicals like Truck Brite, Fleet Brite and Aluma Brite work great and cost less than any other truck washing chemicals in the country.  So let’s focus on how you can apply our truck washing chemicals faster so you can make more money.  The most efficient way to apply our truck washing chemicals is a down streamer or low pressure sprayer. They can increase your speed applying our truck washing chemicals saving you time with more profit  Applying truck washing chemicals is fairly easy when washing 150 trucks with the truck washing chemicals!

Truck Washing Chemicals Application

Truck Washing Chemicals for FleetsA professional method of applying truck washing chemicals is called “two-stepping”. In this technique, you hit the surface with acid-based truck washing chemicals and finish with alkaline neutralizing truck washing chemicals. Switching between the opposite ends of the pH spectrum, the dirt is “popped” off the surface. The acid based truck washing chemicals used for the first part of the process is usually made with hydrofluoric acid. Our hydrofluoric-based truck washing chemicals is called Aluma Brite. These truck washing chemicals are perfect for all types of trucks, fleets and aluminum surfaces.

Hydrofluoric acid is extremely dangerous for inexperienced people to use. It travels through the skin to seek and destroy the calcium in your bones and body. Severe exposure to hydrofluoric acid can be fatal in a matter of hours.  Since so many fleet washers rely on the two – step method, Sun Brite Supply developed a Safety Ointment for emergency use after exposure to hydrofluoric. It can add several hours of time for you to get medical attention. We offer this with every purchase of our hydrofluoric truck washing chemicals.

Truck Washing Chemicals That Are Safer

We also have truck washing chemicals for those who are willing to sacrifice the aggressiveness of hydrofluoric for the safety of a different acid. We offer citric/phosphoric truck washing chemicals called Aluma Safe. We have worked with companies that design truck washing chemicals for fleet washing contractors. These products are made to remove the toughest stains and soil from any type of fleet or construction equipment.

Not washing tractor-trailer rigs, we offer several one-step truck washing chemicals that might be ideal for you. The gentlest of these is called Truck Brite, which is safe for all kinds of surfaces. If you are washing paint-only surfaces, such as UPS or Frito Lay trucks, you will probably want to move up to Fleet Brite pretty quickly. This is an aggressive one-step washer that is very inexpensive to use. It will get you off the job quicker than any other truck washing chemicals we know of.

My personal favorite truck washing chemicals overall is Big Truck Brite. It’s less aggressive than Fleet Brite, but it can be used on all surfaces and it leaves the vehicle with a near-wax shine. I use it on my own truck and it leaves it clean and shiny!  Wet Wax that you can add to any truck wash to get that shine on the vehicle that fleet managers are looking for. (NOTE: We have lots of customers who even buy Wet Wax and add it to house wash mixtures for a nice gleam on vinyl and aluminum!)  All of the truck washing chemicals can be found at our local Sun Brite Supply!

Truck Washing Chemicals And Hot Water

Hot Box can be used with truck washing chemicals for faster results!Most truck washing chemicals work better with hot water than cold. If you don’t have hot water, you will use about twice as much washer to get the job done. You can use truck washing chemicals with a Hot Box to make this job easier. We sell Hot boxes, an alternative to buying a new hot water pressure washer if you don’t already have one. Thinking about buying a hot water pressure washer, don’t forget that we have guaranteed low prices on some of the best hot water pressure washers around!

The water you use for fleet washing makes a big difference, too. Many truck washing companies like to use de-ionized water (D. I. for short) after they rinse off their truck washing chemicals. This water goes through a treatment that makes it rinse off the vehicle without spots. If you don’t have a D. I. system, there are some easy alternatives that are extremely inexpensive. We have a product called SoSoft, which is almost as effective as using D. I. After rinsing off your truck washing chemicals, you just add it to your water for a spot-free rinse.
