An error log is a comprehensive report of the warnings and error messages which site visitors faced when they were looking through your website. This is the raw data that the hosting server has generated and it will help you discover potential problems with your site and resolve them in a timely manner, in order to improve the site’s overall performance and to increase the users’ satisfaction. You can find quite a few things in an error log - the time when the error occurred, the actual path to the file the website visitor couldn't access, the IP the request came from, and the reason this request couldn't be processed. There are lots of reasons for your site visitors to see an error message - a link leading to a non-existent file, a script website that cannot be processed properly by the server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, and so forth.

Error Log Viewer in Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, included with our hosting accounts, shall make it very easy to generate and check out an error log for any website that you have inside 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 need to keep an eye on. The button is available for every single domain which you have hosted and each subdomain which you have set up, so you can get a comprehensive log for each and every one of them individually, so as to be able to monitor the sites for problems simplier and easier. A second click on the very same button will disable the feature, but you shall still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, that is available in the same section. When necessary, 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 function which can be switched on with a click with any of the semi-dedicated server packages that we offer. This can be done via the Access/Error Logs section of the in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which we shall give you to manage your account. Once you navigate there, you will see each domain and subdomain that you have hosted/created in the account listed in alphabetical order. Activating the error logs can be done separately for each one of them by pressing the On button, that's situated on the right-hand side. By simply clicking the Off button, you will deactivate the log generation if, for instance, you have resolved the problems on the site or you have relocated it somewhere else. Also you can download each of the logs with no more than a click and if you have the needed software on your laptop, you can process them and get easy-to-read graphs and charts that'll enable you to spot the most common problems on the site.
