I'm using my localhost (XAMPP client) to test my WordPress website and everything works fine, till it comes to verifying how does my 404.php template looks like. I can't preview any changes, because it never loads the actual site, just the localhost warning about non-existing content. I believe I have to change something in Apache's settings, but I can't really figure out, what.

Will be grateful for any advice.

  • Well, in case anyone will ever need this... You might as well just use localhost/yoursite/?page_id=99999 . At least I found it working for me. – Entalpia Feb 11 '14 at 14:06
  • If you're simulating a virtual host (e.g. local.dev) you'd get the 404.php. Maybe you should take a look a my Gist on virtual hosts: gist.github.com/hofmannsven/6526824 – Sven Feb 13 '14 at 23:31
