An error log is a detailed report of the warnings and error messages that website visitors faced when they were surfing around your website. This is the raw data that the hosting server has produced and it could help you locate potential issues with your Internet site and resolve them in a timely manner, so as to boost the site’s overall performance and to increase the users’ total satisfaction. You can discover quite a few things in an error log - the time when the error occurred, the actual path to the file that the visitor could not access, the IP the request came from, and the reason why this request couldn't be processed. There are different reasons for your visitors to see an error message - a link that leads to a non-existent file, a script page that cannot be processed adequately by the server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, etc.
Error Log Viewer in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, provided with our shared hosting accounts, will make it very easy to generate and view an error log for any Internet site that you have in your account. After you log in, you need to check out the Access/Error Logs section and click on the On/Off button for the website that you intend to keep track of. The button is available for each domain name which you have hosted and each subdomain you have set up, so you can get a detailed log for every single one of them independently, in order to be able to check out the sites for problems much easier. A second click on the exact same button will disable the feature, but you shall still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, that's available inside the same section. If needed, you can use software on your computer to process the raw web server data for statistical purposes.
Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Servers
The error log generation is a function which can be switched on with only a click with each of the semi-dedicated server solutions that we provide. You can do this using the Access/Error Logs section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which we will give you to manage your account. Once you go there, you shall see each domain name and subdomain that you have hosted/created in the account listed in alphabetical order. Switching on the error logs could be performed one at a time for each and every one of them by pressing the On button, that is situated on the right-hand side. By simply clicking on the Off button, you shall turn off the log generation if, for example, you have fixed the problems on the website or you have moved it someplace else. Also you can download every one of the logs with simply a click and if you have the necessary software on your PC, you can process them and get easy-to-read graphs and charts that will help you spot the most common issues on the Internet site.
