    Random 404 in U7

    We have never experienced this issue in Umbraco 4, but we've got this twice in Umbraco 7.

    The Problem

    So we've got a page:

    It has been working for a month, then suddenly it shows 404:

    The Solution

    We could change the template of this document, eg. from SalePage to TextPage, then back to SalePage.
    That will temporarily fix it.

    But after IIS restart, or after republishing the page, it will show the 404 error again.

    For a permanent fix, we have to change the page name, eg. from Sale to Sale1.

    The Question

    Changing the page name is not an ideal solution at all.

    Has anyone experienced this? Or know where to look? May be the database has a corrupted entry somewhere?

    Hi Hardi

    Have you checked the even viewer log on the server to see what's going on there perhaps? And also what about the /app_data/logs file? Anything marked with ERROR or WARNING ?

    Thanks Jan,

    Yes we can see "No specified template" in the log.

    This is the problem. We have this structure under Content:

    - Home
        - HomeSlide1
        - HomeSlide2
    - Pages
        - Sale
        - About Us
        - etc 

    The problem started when someone created a "home slide" under Home called "sale".

    So, both Home/sale and Pages/Sale has the same path: /sale/

    Deleting/renaming Home/sale fixed the problem.
