An error log is a comprehensive report of the warnings and error messages which visitors encountered when they were browsing your website. This is the raw data that the hosting server has produced and it may help you locate potential issues with your Internet site and handle them in a timely manner, so as to improve the site’s overall performance and to raise the users’ full satisfaction. You can discover many things inside an error log - the time when the error showed up, the exact path to the file which the visitor could not access, the IP the request came from, and the reason this request cannot be processed. There are various reasons for your visitors to see an error message - a link which leads to a non-existent file, a script page that cannot be processed correctly by the server, a website access attempt by a blocked IP address, etc.

Error Log Viewer in Website Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, offered with our website hosting accounts, will make it very simple to generate and check out an error log for any website that you have within your account. Once you log in, you have to check out the Access/Error Logs section and click on the On/Off button for the site that you need to keep tabs on. The button is available for each and every domain name which you have hosted and each subdomain that you have created, so you can get an in depth log for each and every one of them separately, in order to be able to examine the sites for problems easier. A second click on the very same button shall turn off the function, but you'll still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, that is available within the same section. If needed, you can use software on your personal computer to process the raw web server information for statistical purposes.
