Support » Plugin: Redirection » Redirects creating 404 with /services/api/json/1.4.0/?

  • Resolved dzunker22


    I recently stopped using a photo sharing website that was under a subdomain.
    I set up all of my redirects to handle the change in urls via the Redirection plugin.
    The redirects appear to work when testing, but I am seeing several 404’s beginning with the source url being /services/api/json/1.4.0/?
    and the Referrer / User Agent being one of the links from the old site.
    Why is this happening and how can I correct this issue?

    I use regis caching on my server and WP Rocket in WordPress.


    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    You can use the information provided in the 404 log to try and work out why the 404s are occuring. For example, if you have a referrer then you can look on the referring page and see if the 404 URL is referenced in some way.

    The referring page is the page from the photo shairng site with the subdomain thhat i mentioned above. I continue t o get and excessive number of these 404s

    For Example:

    Referrer/User Agent:
    Mozilla/5.0 AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko; compatible; Googlebot/2.1; + Safari/537.36

    Source URL:

    If I enter the Referrer, I get the page I am expecting via redirects, but I do not understand why the /services/api/json/1.4.0/ is showing a 404.

    That may be the case, but the requests are still coming in. They appear to be from Google.

    You can redirect the requests, or return a 410 error, if you want.
