Hi, i'd like to change my .htaccess file, but no permissions

I want to change the 404 pages, but denied permissions on my own website

You should create new .htaccess in your htdocs folder, not in root account folder

That’s what the Error Pages option in control panel is for. Use it to set custom error pages for your website.

Edit: I’ve just realized that this thread is 2 months old. Sorry if you figured this out already
