An error log is a comprehensive report of the warnings and error messages which website visitors came across as they were browsing your website. This is the raw info that the web server has produced and it can help you find potential problems with your site and handle them in a timely manner, in order to improve the site’s functionality and to add to the users’ satisfaction. You can discover a variety of things in an error log - the time when the error occurred, the specific path to the file which the website visitor can't access, the IP address the request came from, and the reason this request could not be processed. There are different reasons for your website visitors to see an error message - a link leading to a non-existent file, a script site that can't be processed correctly by the hosting server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, and so forth.

Error Log Viewer in Cloud Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, provided with our cloud hosting accounts, shall make it very simple to generate and look at an error log for any site that you have within your account. As you log in, you will need to navigate to the Access/Error Logs section and click on the On/Off button for the website that you would like to keep track of. The button is available for every single domain name you have hosted and each subdomain you have created, so you can get an in depth log for each of them separately, as a way to be able to check the sites for problems a lot easier. A second click on the exact same button will disable the feature, but you'll still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, which is available in the exact same section. If required, you can use software on your computer to process the raw server info for statistical purposes.

Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Servers

The error log generation is a feature that may be enabled with simply a click with any of the semi-dedicated server packages we offer. This can be done from the Access/Error Logs section of the custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which we will provide you with to manage the account. Once you navigate there, you shall see each and every domain name and subdomain which you have hosted/created within the account listed in alphabetical order. Enabling the error logs can be performed separately for every single one of them by clicking on the On button, that's located on the right-hand side. By simply clicking on the Off button, you shall turn off the log generation if, for example, you've solved the problems on the website or you have migrated it someplace else. You can also download each of the logs with only a mouse click and if you have the required software on your computer, you could process them and get easy-to-read graphs and charts that'll allow you to spot the most common issues on the site.
