Wrong error code

Post by uwes » Sat Aug 25, 2018 7:32 am

Google search console complains about a page on one of my CMSimple XH sites. When crawling my site, Google tries to access

http://my.domain/?RSS&realblogaction=vi ... =25&page=3

This is an old URL that doesn't exist any more. When I enter the URL in my browser's location bar, I get the following error message:
Ein fataler Fehler ist aufgetreten. Aktivieren Sie den Debug-Modus für weitere Hinweise.
In the Google report, this is a 5xx result code.

So what should I do next? I can't find a way to tell Google "This is an outdated URL. Stop trying to crawl it."
In my optinion, CMSimple XH should return a proper result code, e.g. 404.

It seems to me that there is a (perhaps dynamically generated) page named “RSS”. This page should be removed. I suggest that you enable debug mode which should show the error message, which in turn should be helpful to find out what's wrong.
