An error log is a list of the error messages and warnings that showed up for one reason or another while your visitors were looking through your site. This kind of a log contains raw information about the way the web server has dealt with requests a number of situations. An error message may appear if, for example, a link leads to a website or a file that's not on the hosting server, if the code on a given page cannot be processed, if somebody is trying to access the site or its back office using an IP address that is blocked by an .htaccess rule and so forth. The info within the error log offers the IP of the visitor, what error message showed up and the cause for the server to display it, the whole path to the file which triggered the error and the precise time of the event. Having this information will help you learn if any part of your site has a problem, which you could then resolve. As a result, your site visitors will have a better experience and you'll optimize the website for maximum performance.
Error Log Viewer in Web Hosting
You can activate the generation of error logs easily if you purchase a web hosting plan from us. An entire section inside the Hepsia CP, offered with the accounts, is dedicated to the logs and activating this function will take literally a mouse click. When you navigate to this section, you'll see all the hosts which you have in the account, including your domains and subdomains, even the ones that you may have created to test a website before it goes live. You only need to press the On button for the ones that you want to be monitored by our system and it'll commence generating error logs instantly. To switch off the feature, you shall only have to click the exact same button once more. Each error log may be downloaded and saved to your desktop or notebook whenever you want, even if you have deactivated the feature.
Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Servers
The error log generation is a feature which can be switched on with just a mouse click with each of the semi-dedicated server plans we provide. This can be done through the Access/Error Logs section of the custom-built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which we will give you to manage the account. Once you go there, you will see every single domain and subdomain which you have hosted/created in the account listed in alphabetical order. Initiating the error logs may be done one at a time for each one of them by pressing the On button, that's located on the right-hand side. By simply clicking on the Off button, you shall disable the log generation if, for instance, you have sorted out the problems on the site or you have migrated it someplace else. You can also download any of the logs with no more than a click and if you have the required software on your laptop, you'll be able to process them and get easy-to-read graphs and charts that'll allow you to spot the most common issues on the site.
