An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings that appeared for one reason or another while your visitors were browsing your Internet site. Such a log contains raw info about the way the web server has dealt with requests in various situations. An error message may appear if, for example, a link leads to a page or a file that's not on the web server, if the code on a particular page cannot be processed, if someone is trying to access the site or its back office using an IP address that's blocked by an .htaccess rule and so forth. The data inside the error log offers the IP address of the visitor, what error message appeared and the basis for the server to display it, the whole path to the file which generated the error and the precise time of the event. Having this data will help you learn if any part of your website has an issue, that you can then resolve. For that reason, your website visitors will have a better experience and you will optimize the website for optimum performance.

Error Log Viewer in Website Hosting

You can enable the generation of error logs with ease if you buy a website hosting package from us. A complete section within the Hepsia CP, which comes with the accounts, is devoted to the logs and activating this feature requires literally a click. Once you head over to this section, you shall see all the hosts you have in the account, including your domain names and subdomains, including those that you may have created to test a website prior to it going live. You only need to press the On button for the ones which you want to be watched by our system and it shall commence generating error logs almost immediately. To deactivate the function, you'll just have to click the same button once more. Every single error log may be downloaded and saved to your computer at any time, even when you have deactivated the function.

Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The error log generation is a function that may be enabled with just a click with any of the semi-dedicated server packages which we offer you. You can do this using the Access/Error Logs section of the in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which we will give you to manage the account. Once you navigate there, you shall see each domain name and subdomain you have hosted/created inside the account listed in alphabetical order. Enabling the error logs could be done separately for each and every one of them by clicking on the On button, that's situated on the right-hand side. By simply clicking on the Off button, you will turn off the log generation if, for instance, you have fixed the problems on the site or you have moved it somewhere else. You could also download each of the logs with no more than a mouse click and if you have the necessary software on your personal computer, you'll be able to process them and get easy-to-read graphs and charts that will allow you to spot the most common issues on the Internet site.
