    Hey everyone. I'm trying to redirect my 404 errors to the root of my site. I have the following code in my .htaccess file:

    Code:
    ErrorDocument 404 /index.htm
    ErrorDocument 500 /index.htm
    
    My site is a basic, static html site. Normally with Wordpress I can just change the 404 page and it works easy but this is my first attempt with .htaccess.

    Anyone have any ideas on how I can use htaccess to redirect my 404 errors?

    Any help is appreciated.
