Check your theme folder content for fantastico symlink

404 page will most likely be caused by the affected theme not having, a fantastico symlink, or symlink being misdirected.

Go to the folder of the theme, which in case of Paper Lantern theme will be /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/paper_lantern and check for file with name fantastico.

[email protected] [/usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/paper_lantern]# ls -l | grep fantastico
[email protected] [/usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/paper_lantern]#

Folder should have symlink in it, with name fantastico, pointing to /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/fantastico/, if the symlink is missing create one with ln -s command, also check if the file to which symlink is pointing is an existing file.

[email protected] [/usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/paper_lantern]# ln -s /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/fantastico/ fantastico
[email protected] [/usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/paper_lantern]# ls -l | grep fantastico
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 37 Mar 3 18:02 fantastico -> /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/fantastico/
[email protected] [/usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/paper_lantern]#

After creating a needed symlink Fantastico De Luxe page should work as expected.
