An error log is a comprehensive report of the warnings and error messages which site visitors came across while they were surfing your website. This is the raw information that the server has accumulated and it could help you find potential issues with your website and solve them in a timely manner, in order to improve the site’s performance and to add to the users’ total satisfaction. You can discover several things in an error log - the time when the error occurred, the actual path to the file which the website visitor could not access, the IP address the request came from, and the reason this request cannot be processed. There are numerous reasons for your visitors to see an error message - a link leading to a non-existent file, a script site that cannot be processed correctly by the web server, a website access attempt by a blocked IP address, and so forth.

Error Log Viewer in Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, provided with our web hosting accounts, will make it very easy to generate and look at an error log for any site that you have inside your account. As you log in, you need to navigate to the Access/Error Logs section and click on the On/Off button for the Internet site that you intend to monitor. The button is available for every domain name you have hosted and every subdomain which you have created, so you can get an in depth log for each of them individually, in order to be able to examine 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 within the same section. When required, you can use software on your computer to process the raw web server data for statistical purposes.

Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Servers

The error log generation is a function that can be activated with a click with each of the semi-dedicated server plans which we provide. This can be done using the Access/Error Logs section of the custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which we will supply you with to manage your account. Once you navigate there, you will see every single domain name and subdomain that you have hosted/created in the account listed in alphabetical order. Enabling the error logs could be done one at a time for each one of them by clicking on the On button, which is situated on the right-hand side. By simply clicking the Off button, you'll disable the log generation if, for instance, you've resolved the problems on the site or you have relocated it someplace else. Also you can download each of the logs with only a mouse click and if you have the required software on your PC, you'll be able to process them and get easy-to-read graphs and charts that'll enable you to spot the most common problems on the site.
