    What WordPress Plugin will track 404’s from a site migration when my 301 redirects will be in my .htaccess file not a WP plugin?

    I’m nearly ready to launch my redesigned website where it’s going from Html in Dreamweaver to WordPress and Http to Https.

    I’ve done and tested through a long, long trial and error effort the redirects on most of my pages and they’re ready to go in an .htaccess file but I still might be missing some.

    Does anyone know a WordPress Plugin that will track any 404 errors from my old site but one that will do it without it actually doing the 404’s because I want it in a faster .htaccess file where I don’t have to worry about updating yet another wp plugin that may slow the site down?

    Nothing in WordPress will track that. That’s because the 401’s are executed and completed before WordPress is even loaded, so there’s no way for it to log anything.

    Thanks, Too bad. So other than the log files which I likely won’t get access too and likely wouldn’t understand them anyway, how else would you find out?

    Unless you let the 404’s go through to a logging system that you have access to/control over, then you can’t do anything.

    That’s why it’s sometimes better to take the small performance hit of letting WordPress handle these, because it lets you set up what ever sort of logging that you want to.
