And a PHP template for dealing with any sort of error, if you want to keep it simple:


      400 => array('400 Bad Request', 'The request cannot be fulfilled due to bad syntax.'),
      401 => array('401 Login Error', 'It appears that the password and/or user-name you entered was incorrect.'),
      403 => array('403 Forbidden', 'Sorry, employees and staff only.'),
      404 => array('404 Missing', 'We\'re sorry, but the page you\'re looking for is missing, hiding, or maybe it moved somewhere else and forgot to tell you.'),
      405 => array('405 Method Not Allowed', 'The method specified in the Request-Line is not allowed for the specified resource.'),
      408 => array('408 Request Timeout', 'Your browser failed to send a request in the time allowed by the server.'),
      414 => array('414 URL To Long', 'The URL you entered is longer than the maximum length.'),
      500 => array('500 Internal Server Error', 'The request was unsuccessful due to an unexpected condition encountered by the server.'),
      502 => array('502 Bad Gateway', 'The server received an invalid response from the upstream server while trying to fulfill the request.'),
      504 => array('504 Gateway Timeout', 'The upstream server failed to send a request in the time allowed by the server.'),


       $errortitle="Unknown Error";
       $message="An unknown error has occurred.";
