  1. I created a Htaccess file and copied the code, but I don’t know what I should be doing after following this step. Can you help?

  2. the .htaccess file is to redirect users to a custom error page depending on the specific web server error they encounter. By using a custom error page, you can present them with a list of your site's top articles, a sitemap with links to the various areas of your site, and it can include your site's navigation system
