    I have uploaded Author.php template file in the theme folder. But somehow it is not working. Every time I get 404 page.Currently I am using coogee theme for my website(www.code4reference.com). I don't know whats going wrong. Do I need to update some other file once I upload author.php in theme folder. My author.php looks as following.

    <?php
    /**
     * The template for displaying Author Archive pages.
     *
     * @package WordPress
     * @subpackage Twenty_Ten
     * @since Twenty Ten 1.0
     */
    
    get_header(); ?>
    
    		<div id="container">
    			<div id="content" role="main">
    
    <?php
    	/* Queue the first post, that way we know who
    	 * the author is when we try to get their name,
    	 * URL, description, avatar, etc.
    	 *
    	 * We reset this later so we can run the loop
    	 * properly with a call to rewind_posts().
    	 */
    	if ( have_posts() )
    		the_post();
    ?>
    
    				<h1 class="page-title author"><?php printf( __( 'Author Archives: %s', 'twentyten' ), "<span class='vcard'><a class='url fn n' href='" . get_author_posts_url( get_the_author_meta( 'ID' ) ) . "' title='" . esc_attr( get_the_author() ) . "' rel='me'>" . get_the_author() . "</a></span>" ); ?></h1>
    
    <?php
    // If a user has filled out their description, show a bio on their entries.
    if ( get_the_author_meta( 'description' ) ) : ?>
    					<div id="entry-author-info">
    						<div id="author-avatar">
    							<?php echo get_avatar( get_the_author_meta( 'user_email' ), apply_filters( 'twentyten_author_bio_avatar_size', 60 ) ); ?>
    						</div><!-- #author-avatar -->
    						<div id="author-description">
    							<h2><?php printf( __( 'About %s', 'twentyten' ), get_the_author() ); ?></h2>
    							<?php the_author_meta( 'description' ); ?>
    						</div><!-- #author-description	-->
    					</div><!-- #entry-author-info -->
    <?php endif; ?>
    
    <?php
    	/* Since we called the_post() above, we need to
    	 * rewind the loop back to the beginning that way
    	 * we can run the loop properly, in full.
    	 */
    	rewind_posts();
    
    	/* Run the loop for the author archive page to output the authors posts
    	 * If you want to overload this in a child theme then include a file
    	 * called loop-author.php and that will be used instead.
    	 */
    	 get_template_part( 'loop', 'author' );
    ?>
    			</div><!-- #content -->
    		</div><!-- #container -->
    
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    A long shot guess. Ensure the filename is all lower case. Most server file systems are case sensitive.

    the file name is in lower case. But still I am not able to see it.

    Can you post a link to the error page you're getting? Mainly, I just want to see the actual link you're using to get to the error page. There's a lot that can go wrong here, so we'll need to narrow it down a bit.

    http://code4reference.com/author
    http://code4reference.com/author-rakesh
    http://code4reference.com/author-1

    In all the above cases I get 404 page. Am I missing here something?
