# Computer Errors

Ever wonder what the error means when error 404 shows up? I will be working on multiple sets to cover them. The 400's are used to indicate that you cannot access the site. Here are some computer errors for access denial to sites sites and stuff:

Error 400- Server can't understand commands due to a syntax error

Error 401- Similar to 403, but specifically for when the required information has not been given

Error 402- This basically means a payment or any other further action is required to access the page

Error 403- this means that the site is password protected and/or you don't have permission to access it

Error 404- This is MOST LIKEY the most common error. This occurs when a site cannot be found

Error 405- A request Method is not supported with the resource. Like read only stuff

Error 406- This means that something was not deemed acceptable according to the Accept headers sent in the request.

Error 407- The client first has to authenticate its proxy

Error 408- This means that the server timed out while waiting to perform a task. It usually happens when you try to connect to a website and it takes too long

I am working on adding more, but for now, please wait patiently. I am very busy

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Why such numbers were chosen? Does anyone know the significance of numbers - 400, 401.. and so on?

True.

Each value is assigned to a specific error. The 400s are for denied access to something. I don't know why 404 is can't find page and 400 is the command cannot be understood though

They go from zero, but I'll have to look up how high it goes

Hey Kartik Sharma all these are http status codes, http status codes have nXX family. The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) maintains the official registry of HTTP status codes. The first digit of the status code specifies one of five classes of response. So the first digit represents status family and rest is standard,,you have a complete look at HTTP status code family for client side errors

I will eventually add all of them, but I have been very busy with school and extracurricular stuff lately :-P I can probably post a problem or two over the next few days
