The document is still there, unmoved, at:

  http://teaching.csse.uwa.edu.au/units/CITS4407/assignments/assignment1-clarifications.php

(just using http: not https: )

I suspect that you're using Safari on a Mac, which has a relatively new (annoying) feature, to map 
http: URLs to https: if the original URL was loaded from a webpage using https:
In our case, the help fora are served from URLs such as  https://secure.csse...
but any URLs, such as http://teaching.csse..., are mapped/redirected by your browser to something that 
doesn't exist.

There seems no simple fix to this, other than deleting all your website private data (cookie), but 
don't.
  https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7217573?searchText=Safari%20Redirects%20to%20HTTPS

Try it with Firefox; notice that the problem does not occur.

I have asked ITS for a website certificate for teaching.csse...,
but it is the weekend.
