An error log is a comprehensive report of the warnings and error messages which visitors came across when they were surfing your Internet site. This is the raw info that the server has generated and it can help you discover potential issues with your Internet site and fix them in a timely manner, as a way to boost the site’s efficiency and to increase the users’ satisfaction. You will find quite a few things in an error log - the time when the error occurred, the exact path to the file that the site visitor couldn't access, the IP address the request came from, and the reason why this request cannot be processed. There are various reasons for your website visitors to see an error message - a link that leads to a non-existent file, a script page that cannot be processed in the right way by the hosting server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, and many others.
Error Log Viewer in Shared Web Hosting
You can switch on the generation of error logs with ease when you purchase a shared web hosting solution from our company. A whole section within the Hepsia CP, which comes with the accounts, is dedicated to the logs and switching on this function requires literally a click. After you go to this section, you shall see all the hosts you have within the account, including your domain names and subdomains, including those that you may have created to test a website just before it goes live. You only have to click on the On button for the ones you want to be watched by our system and it will begin generating error logs at once. To turn off the function, you'll simply have to click the exact same button once more. Every error log may be downloaded and saved to your laptop or computer whenever you want, even when you have disabled the feature.
Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Servers
The error log generation is a function that can be activated with just a mouse click with each of the semi-dedicated server packages we provide. This can be done via the Access/Error Logs section of the custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which we shall supply you with to manage the account. Once you navigate there, you will see each and every domain name and subdomain you have hosted/created in the account listed in alphabetical order. Initiating the error logs could be performed independently for each one of them by pressing the On button, that is situated on the right-hand side. By simply clicking the Off button, you'll disable the log generation if, for example, you've sorted out the issues on the website or you have migrated it someplace else. Also you can download any one of the logs with no more than a click and if you have the required software on your personal computer, you may process them and get easy-to-read graphs and charts which will allow you to spot the most common problems on the site.
