An error log is a listing of the error messages and warnings that appeared for one reason or another while your visitors were surfing around your Internet site. This type of a log contains raw information about the way the server has handled requests in various situations. An error message might appear if, for example, a link leads to a website or a file that is not on the server, if the code on a specific page can't be processed, if any individual is trying to access the site or its back office via an IP address that's blocked by an .htaccess rule and so on. The information in the error log offers the IP of the visitor, what error message came out and the root cause for the hosting server to display it, the entire path to the file which triggered the error and the exact time of the event. Having this info will permit you to determine if any part of your website has an issue, that you can then take care of. As a result, your site visitors will have a better experience and you will optimize the Internet site for maximum performance.
Error Log Viewer in Cloud Website Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel, offered with our cloud website hosting accounts, will make it really easy to generate and view an error log for any Internet site that you have within your account. When you log in, you have to check out the Access/Error Logs section and click on the On/Off button for the website that you would like to keep tabs on. The button is available for every single domain name you have hosted and each subdomain which you have set up, so you can get a detailed log for each of them independently, so as to be able to check out the websites for problems much easier. A second click on the same button will deactivate the feature, but you will still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, which is available inside the very same section. If required, you can use software on your laptop or computer to process the raw web server information for statistical purposes.
Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Servers
The error log generation is a feature which can be switched on with simply a mouse click with any of the semi-dedicated server packages that we provide. This can be done from the Access/Error Logs section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which we'll give you to manage your account. Once you go there, you shall see every single domain name and subdomain you have hosted/created within the account listed in alphabetical order. Activating the error logs may be done one at a time for every single one of them by pressing the On button, that is located on the right-hand side. By simply clicking the Off button, you shall disable the log generation if, for example, you have resolved the problems on the site or you have relocated it somewhere else. Additionally you can download any of the logs with simply a mouse click and if you have the needed software on your laptop, you could process them and get easy-to-read graphs and charts that'll enable you to spot the most common problems on the site.
