Error pages

The error page is typically used when a system is down or a generic error has occured.

When an error can not be presented on the current page, a separate page is used just to display the message. The error page should ideally contain a good description of what the nature of the problem is and how the user may avoid or rectify the problem.

Error page 500

Error page 404

If the error is a 404 (page not found) the page may include some nice options of where to go. Common items may include the index/home-page, search or other sites.
