How to redirect error URLs

Can anyone help me out with creating error URL redirects? For example I want to create a redirect for a 504 error. I tried to modify the web.xml file located in Confluence/confluence/WEB-INF/web.xml. I see theres a snippet in there for a 500 error but when I tried to insert the 504 redirect it did not work. 

My server is running on Tomcat. Thanks in advance. 

 

<error-page>
<error-code>500</error-code>
<location>/500page.jsp</location>
</error-page>

Hello,

if I understand you correctly : you want to use your own custom error-pages?

I use a custom maintenance page for our JIRA instance, but we have Apache (reverse proxy) setup, so I used Apache configuration to get the redirect done, I didnt really want to touch the web.xml.

If you have Apache setup I can prob help , if you only use tomcat , maybe try this : http://serverfault.com/questions/254102/custom-error-pages-on-apache-tomcat

cheers

Thanks for the help but unfortunately I am not using Apache. The methods listed in the link you posted are similar to mine but I still cant achieve what I want. Thanks for your help though.
