More elaborate error explications:

200 The request was successful, and the requested file was delivered to the Web browser.
304 The request was successful, but the requested file did not have to be delivered to the Web browser because the visitor’s Web browser already had a current version of the requested file in its cache
403 Access Denied A user tried to access a file or directory that they did not have permission to access.
404 File Not Found A file was requested that does not exist. The request was unsuccessful because the Web server couldn’t find the requested file. This "404" corresponds to the "404 File Not Found" error returned by your Web server
500 Internal Server Error For any of a number of reasons, the server encountered some type of error.
