Custom Error Pages

You can use one of the included themes or make one of your very own.

To add your own custom theme click the Create New Theme button and enter your theme name.

Now you are provided with three options.

  1. You can edit the theme in the WAM Theme with the text you wish to use.
  2. You can open the folder that contains your website and edit the theme in your favorite HTML Editor.
  3. We also provide the Responsive Layout Maker Project file that was used to create the default theme. You could open this project and make your edits there as well.
Advanced Settings Window

Manage Restrictions

This area gives you the ability to restrict access to your website by IP address, IP range and domain.

Note: If you choose the option Block Access to your website for everyone except the IP addresses listed below: your entire website will be password protected and only the IP Addresses you enter can access it.

Server Configuration tab

If you have been poking around the Advanced Settings window, and you’re curious about the redirection, MIME or Server settings, you have come to the right place!

Server Settings

Under the Server Configuration tab you will find many different options to change. If you need more information on any one of the settings listed simply click the setting and the What's This? dialog to the left will explain what that setting offers.

Server Settings Tab
MIME Types Tab

For a custom MIME Type simply add a file extension and that prompts the browser to download that extension. You could upload .coffeecup files and instead of them being displayed in the browser, your browser would then download them to your computer.

MIME Types Tab
Redirection Tab

This section allows you to customize how your visitors access certain content. A good example of this is web browsers. If you have created a version of your home page specifically designed for mobile devices, you can use this section to redirect mobile browsers to that page. In this tutorial, we’ll over the basic information behind how this section works.

Keep in mind that these are pretty advanced settings, so be extra-super sure of what you’re doing before you make any changes — otherwise, you could mess up your site access!

First of all, click the Add Rule button. This brings up a number of settings that you can use to create a new rule.

Server Configuration Tab

Here’s what goes into each field:


Put the name of the file you would like to redirect in this field with this format:


Where filename is the name of your file and .ext is the extension. For example, if you were redirecting the file contact.html, you would enter this in the Redirect field:



Enter the URL of the page where you would like to redirect your users to.


Clicking the Flag icon opens the Rewrite Rule Flags window, which allows you to specify details about the redirect.

We could try to explain how to use the options in this window, but the Apache documentation does a much better job of it. You can learn more here:

Add Condition

Allows you to set up a rule that describes what do to with a page when certain conditions are met. For example, you can set specific conditions for different browsers or IP addresses. You can add up to two conditions.

Custom .htaccess

Here you can enter your own custom .htaccess markup. This comes in handy if you have special features that you want to enable that Access Manager does not directly support.

Custom .htaccess Tab
Verify your code!

Entering incorrect .htaccess markup can cause your website to not function correctly. Make sure what you are entering is valid and supported by your hosting provider before adding it here.
