Everything I find seems to be about created a custom 404 page.
That is not what I am trying to do.
If I want to block access to a page I can do this in htaccess:
RewriteRule pattern - [F]
However, "Forbidden" hints that the page does exists. I want the page to appear to not even exist. So I would like to give a 404 error instead of a 403. Then have it render whatever 404 page would render if the resource really wasn't there.
How can I do that?
