The HTTP 204 No Content success status response code indicates that the request has succeeded, but that the server does not need to return an entity-body, and might want to return updated metainformation. The 204 response MUST NOT include a message-body, and thus is always terminated by the first empty line after the header fields.

Users typically search for a solution by asking about:

  • error code 204 mw1
  • monster hunter world error code 204 mw1
  • mhw error code 204-mw1

1. Check the URL for typos

The first step is to check the URL for typos. The second step is to correct the typos. The third step is to re-test the URL.

2. If using a custom URL, check that the domain is registered and active

  1. Go to the WHOIS database for the domain and look for any errors.
  2. If the domain is not registered or is not active, then you will need to register the domain and activate it.
  3. If the domain is registered and is not active, then you will need to contact the domain owner and request that they activate the domain.

3. Check the spelling of the filename, or try a different filename

In Microsoft Word, go to File > Options. On the General tab, under File name, type the filename without the extension. Click OK. On the Proofing tab, under Spelling, make sure the check box next to Show misspelled words is checked. Click OK. In the File name box, type the filename with the extension. Click OK.

4. Check that the file exists in the correct location on the server

  1. Open a command prompt and change to the directory where the file is located.
  2. Use the file command to check the file’s existence.
  3. If the file does not exist, create the file and check its existence.
  4. If the file exists, but is not the correct size or format, modify the file and check its existence.

5. Check the permissions on the file or directory

First, check the file permissions. On a Mac, type “ls -l” to list the file contents and see the permissions. On Windows, open the file in a text editor and look for the “Permissions” column to see the permissions. If the permissions are not correct, you can fix them by using the chmod command. On a Mac, type “chmod” followed by the file permissions you want to change. On Windows, use the chmod command to change the permissions of the file.

If the answers above didn't work then you should also try:

  1. Check for an .htaccess file in the directory where the file is located.
  2. Check the web server logs for more information.
