An error log is a detailed report of the warnings and error messages which website visitors came across whilst they were surfing your Internet site. This is the raw data that the server has produced and it will help you find potential problems with your site and solve them in a timely manner, so as to improve the site’s functionality and to increase the users’ satisfaction. You can discover many things in an error log - the time when the error occurred, the actual path to the file the site visitor can't access, the IP address the request came from, and the reason this request could not be processed. There are lots of reasons for your visitors to see an error message - a link leading to a non-existent file, a script webpage that can't be processed in the right way by the web server, a website access attempt by a blocked IP address, and so forth.
Error Log Viewer in Web Hosting
The Hepsia CP, included with our web hosting accounts, will make it very simple to generate and view an error log for any site that you have in your account. Once you log in, you have to go to the Access/Error Logs section and click on the On/Off button for the Internet site that you intend to keep an eye on. The button is available for each domain which you have hosted and every subdomain you have set up, so you can get an in depth log for each and every one of them separately, as a way to be able to monitor the sites for problems much 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 required, you can use software on your PC to process the raw server information for statistical purposes.
Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Servers
The Hepsia hosting CP, provided with each semi-dedicated server account, will allow you to gather raw web server information about the errors on your sites and to download it as a log file easily. A detailed list of all the domains hosted in the account, as well as of all the subdomains created within it, will be available in the Control Panel and with just a click on the On button on the right-hand side of each one of them, you will be able to enable the log generation independently for each website. To disable the function, you just have to click on the same exact button once more. A Download link beside the button in question will permit you to save the gathered info as a text file and, as needed, to process it on your PC with special software, so that you can get user-friendly charts and tables that'll make it much easier for you to identify and deal with common problems on your sites.
