Or a misconfiguration in the Apache server.

Perhaps I haven't been clear enough. url has ways to deal with it;
url-retrieve(-synchronously) return the status code in the buffer
along other HTTP responses. It's url-insert-file-contents which
ignores it.

The way they are implemented, you can use url-insert, check the status
in the resulting buffer, and lose the additional coding checks that
url-insert-file-contents does, or you can use
url-insert-file-contents, and lose the status check (because
url-insert-file-contents does not give back the buffer it gets from
