    Set debug=false in system.web section

       <compilation defaultLanguage="c#" debug="false" batch="false" targetFramework="4.5">
    

    Verify custom error mode is RemoteOnly , defaultRedirect is defined and errorpage.html is located in root

    <customErrors defaultRedirect="errorpage.html" mode="RemoteOnly" />
    

    httpErrors defined in system.webServer section of the web.config

    <httpErrors existingResponse="PassThrough"/>
    

    Set 404 page in /config/umbracosettings.config

    <errors>
       <!-- the id of the page that should be shown if the page is not found -->
       <!--        <errorPage culture="default">1</errorPage>-->
       <!--        <errorPage culture="en-US">200</errorPage>-->
       <error404>1826</error404>
    
    
    </errors>

    Hi Lori,

    Just checking if you know about the Health Checks dashboard (in the Settings section)?

    When the feature was being developed, a lot of the launch checks were added in - pretty much the things that you mention, debug=false, custom errors, etc.

    I don't think there are ones for favicon.ico or canonical meta-tag ... although I guess that depends on the type of thing you're building with Umbraco, (e.g. if it was a headless CMS, they'd be less relevant).

    There's also a community package with some extra health checks - if they are relevant for you?

    https://our.umbraco.com/packages/backoffice-extensions/ourumbracohealthchecks/

    Cheers,
    - Lee

    I hadn't noticed the localhost references in ClientDependency.config before - looks like it's to do with bundling assets - I've never changed them myself.

    But then I don't really use ClientDependency on the frontend, (I have used it on a couple of sites in the past, but not for every project).

    Most of the Go Live checks I can think of, (for majority of websites), are now covered by the Health Checks dashboard.

    Although I hadn't considered the <httpErrors> one... nice one! :-)

    Cheers,
    - Lee
