Website showing up as 404 Not Found in search results, but working fine if you type the URL directly

Something strange is going on with my website. If you search for any of my article on Google, for example, they show up. If you click the link, this error shows up:

Not Found

The requested URL /demoralizes-farsighted.php was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Apache Server at Port 80However, if you type in my URL ( and go directly to the website, it works fine. It's the same with any page in the website. If you go directly, they show up fine. If you click from a search result, it shows up a 404.

Hey there @reyesekt,


Since your site is working fine but it's showing an erroneous result in search engines, it sounds like you should update your XML sitemap. The search engines will reindex your site and your should be good to go after that.
