single custom post type page not working

WordPress is throwing up a 404 when I try to visit a single-customposttype page. Why is this?

Make sure the name of the page is single-slug.php as it has to match the slug of your customer post type. e.g. If you type is portfolio the page must be single-portfolio.php

I did, made sure of it...

There are too many possible reasons for this, which makes it difficult to solve without anymore info. Can you post your code?
