An error log is an in depth report of the warnings and error messages which site visitors came across while they were surfing around your website. This is the raw info that the hosting server has produced and it could help you find potential issues with your Internet site and resolve them in a timely manner, so as to improve the site’s overall performance and to increase the users’ total satisfaction. You will find a variety of things in an error log - the time when the error occurred, the specific path to the file the site visitor couldn't access, the IP the request came from, and the reason this request could not be processed. There are different reasons for your visitors to see an error message - a link leading 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, included with our shared hosting accounts, shall make it easy to generate and look at an error log for any Internet site that you have within your account. When you log in, you will need to navigate to the Access/Error Logs section and click on the On/Off button for the site that you intend to keep track of. The button is available for every domain that you have hosted and each subdomain which you have created, so you can get a comprehensive log for every single one of them individually, in order to be able to check the sites for problems a lot easier. A second click on the exact same button will turn off the function, but you'll still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, that is available in the exact same section. If required, you can use software on your PC to process the raw web server information for statistical purposes.
Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Servers
The error log generation is a function that can be activated with only a click with any of the semi-dedicated server solutions that we provide. This can be done through the Access/Error Logs section of the custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which we will supply you with to manage your account. When you navigate there, you will see every domain and subdomain that you have hosted/created inside the account listed in alphabetical order. Activating the error logs can be performed separately for each one of them by clicking on the On button, that is located on the right-hand side. By simply clicking the Off button, you will disable the log generation if, for instance, you have fixed the problems on the site or you have transferred it somewhere else. You can also download each of the logs with only a mouse click and if you have the required software on your personal computer, you may process them and get easy-to-read graphs and charts that'll help you spot the most common problems on the site.
