HTTP 404 Error Code

Recommended Posts

Since yesterday morning, we're not able to link to a cache from any notification email coming from gc.com. Below is the error we get when clicking on the link for the cache. Same issue on 3 different computers. Links work on our cell phones. We've talked to a couple different cachers, and they're experiencing the same problem. Anyone else having this issue?

 

Server Error in '/' Application.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

The resource cannot be found.

Description: HTTP 404. The resource you are looking for (or one of its dependencies) could have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable. Please review the following URL and make sure that it is spelled correctly.

 

Requested URL: /error/err.aspx

I am experiencing the exact same problem! Sure hope this gets fixed soon. Will continue to read through the forums to see if there is a solution to this. It's very annoying.

I should add that this has been going on for me for several days.

I have duplicated the issue as well. However, if geocaching.com is already open in your browser then it works fine.

Cheech Gang,

You're right, if geocaching.com is open in the browser, it works. Thanks for the workaround!

 

Geocaching.Com,

Please fix even though there is a workaround! Thanks!

Definitely needs to be fixed. The folks working on it may not be duplicating it because they have gc.com open.

I can't duplicate this. I've closed my browser entirely, opened a notification email in Outlook, clicked the link, and it opens up my browser and displays the cache page just fine. Is there something different I need to do to replicate the issue? If not, then I can report it's working fine here, and has been for the last couple of hours.

I just tried it again (at 2:25 PM E.S.T.) and it's still not working. Tried opening from Windows Live mail (using a gmail address), as well as logging into gmail on the internet, and it still gave me the error code when clicking on the link to "Visit the traditional cache" from the email. I am able to click on the link to the Profile and that works, but nothing else. When clicking on the "Visit the log Entry", I get this message:

 

Object moved to here.

Same issue here, started two days ago.

 

I have the feeling the issue only happens with links in mail notifications, which using http://coord.info/gcxxxxx AND you do not have IE already running OR IE is your default browser.

 

Links to caches: error "Server Error in '/' Application. The resource cannot be found."

 

Links to log entries: error "Object moved to here. - 404 - File Not Found We're sorry, the page you are looking for could not be found."

 

Links to profiles: OK !

 

Works fine if your default browser is Google Chrome.

My husband, Paracelsus has been having this problem. I am not. I am on Vista 64 Bit i.e. 9.0.8112.16421 He is on I.E. 8 (some version) on XP. He has cleared cookies, temp files, yadda, yadda, yadda ....

 

My email sessions are working just fine.

 

He even gets the error if he manually types in http://coord.info/GCnnnnn in the address bar.

 

Something to do with the redirect website? The funny thing is that my redirected URL is:

http:// www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GCnnnnn. I thought it used to look like:

 

http:// www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=ddb9dd9b-e362-4540-b5fe-f672caba9d5b

(That's the link to Leap of Faith cache that someone mentioned in a forum log somewhere GC1HETQ )

 

Did some code change in the redirect area to now point to wp=GCnnnn instead of guid=GCnnnn

I am running Windows XP Service Pack 3, using Outlook Express and Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.18702

I put some of the security updates onto Windows XP on August 15, but I'm not sure if I started getting the error then or sometime before or after that.

Experiencing same behavior as others. Clicking through email leads to 404 error.

We are aware of this issue and are working to track it down. For those who have experienced it, are you running a flavor of Chrome, or are you seeing it with other browsers as well?

It's been happening to me also, using Internet Explorer, doesn't seem to matter if I have Geocaching open or not.

Based on the last few posts, it's sounding like the problem is only occurring on IE8.

No, I get it on Chrome and on my Android device - usually the first time I click a coord.info link in a given day.

Still a problem. Using IE8 on Windows XP Pro SP3. Works most of the time if IE is already open.

@Moun10Bike,

 

Do you have enough information to troubleshoot and solve this issue?

If not, let me know.

This is still an issue. Using IE8, Thunderbird E-mail, Windows XP SP3. Not a problem using Google Chrome.

I wish geocaching would formally acknowledge this issue to the user community and give an ETA of when they will fix it. It is getting very annoying. I should not have to search the forums to find out if it is an issue. Typing "404 - File Not Found' in search just gets me the "used 3 letter search terms" error. This is getting old. Geocaching.com needs to get their act together. I am still upset that the maps don't work as well as they used to, which has been happening for almost a year. Tired of paying for a broken product.

Any word on this? It is really annoying. At least when it does occur, I know to open a browser window to geocaching.com then everything works.

I've been getting the same exact thing - and the same work around. If the browser is already open, then there is no problem. If the email link has to open it, then the error occurs. I've been getting it about three weeks now.

We have been working on this and thought we had it nailed with last week's release. It appears that it is still occurring in some instances, however. I have re-opened the issue in our database.

Still going strong after two months. For me it is a real PIA. Must be a difficult problem to solve.

I have experienced this for the past couple months. At work, using IE 8 and Yahoo! web mail.

 

Interestingly, the same redirect link will work the second time I try it, regardless of whether I still have geocaching.com open or not. As long as it's tried and failed the redirect once, it appears to work subsequently.

 

Very odd.

I have been having the same problems with the same results and tried the same fixes with the same results as given in previous entries. I have one additional piece of information. The following is an example entry:

 

Visit this log entry at the below address:

http://coord.info/GL9KQ80H

 

Visit Traditional Cache

RS1000:

http://coord.info/GC3YZ8N

 

When I click on the GL link, I get a page that states that the site has been moved to here. When I click on "here" (the link), it takes me to a page that gives me the link to the GC that I am searching for. This is about three extra steps to access the page that I am searching for. I hope this helps to track down the problem.

The problem continues, even after two rounds of Web site updates. This must really be a hard problem, but it's also a pain.

Fingers crossed; :unsure: it appears (so far) that last nights update has cured this problem! :D Let's hope it continues to work!

 

NEVERMIND! SPOKE TO SOON... :mad: IT'S STILL NOT WORKING! :mad::mad::mad:

Whenever I attempt to pull up the home screen I get the 404 error. I can use the menu to get to other pages but the home screen always gives me the 404 error. Very frustrating.

Trying to view my lists (Your Lists) using Chrome without success.  When I roll the mouse over the link, it changes color, but the indicated link at the bottom of the window is my dashboard (do loop) www.geocaching.com/account/dashboard#.  When I roll over any other link, ie: watchlist, the indicated link shows www.geocaching.com/my/watchlist.aspx.  If I manually enter https//www.geocaching.com/my/yourlists.aspx, I get a code Error 404: DNF.  This is the only link on my profile page with issues.  I'm going to try it with other browsers and see if I have access to my lists.  I'm having Chrome issues on one other site, but don't think it's related.

 

Ten hours later...logging into the site via Safari on my iPad I now see a new tab on my dashboard under statistics, souvenirs, and leaderboard called my lists, but my watchlist and favorites list has disappeared.  Guess I'll go to bed and check what the Lackeys do overnight.
