Description Liam Morland 2017-06-04 12:31:47 UTC
If I set:
ErrorDocument 404 "404 Not found"
The message will be sent with header:
Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1

Instead, it should use text/plain. People are very unlikely to put a valid HTML document between the quotes in the directive.

On a related note:

I tried 
ErrorDocument 404 ""
which I think is allowed per the documentation
https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/custom-error.html

However I get the following:
AH00526: Syntax error on line ...
ErrorDocument takes two arguments, Change responses for HTTP errors

ErrorDocument 404 " "
does not give an error, but it not exactly what I wanted.
