An error log is a listing of the error messages and warnings that showed up for one reason or another while your visitors were browsing your Internet site. This kind of a log contains raw information on the way the server has handled requests in various situations. An error message may appear if, for instance, a link leads to a webpage or a file that is not on the server, if the code on a particular page cannot be processed, if somebody is trying to access the site or its back office via an IP address which is blocked by an .htaccess rule and so on. The info within the error log features the IP of the visitor, what error message came out and the basis for the hosting server to display it, the whole path to the file that triggered the error and the specific time of the event. Having this info will enable you to find out if any part of your site has a problem, which you could then take care of. For that reason, your website visitors will have a better experience and you may optimize the site for maximum performance.

Error Log Viewer in Website Hosting

You can trigger the generation of error logs easily when you order a website hosting plan from our company. A complete section inside the Hepsia CP, which comes with the accounts, is dedicated to the logs and enabling this feature will take literally a click. When you go to this section, you'll see all the hosts that you have inside the account, including your domains and subdomains, including the ones that you may have created to test a site before it goes live. You just have to press the On button for the ones which you want to be watched by our system and it'll commence generating error logs almost immediately. To switch off the function, you will just have to click the same button again. Every single error log may be downloaded and saved to your desktop or notebook whenever you want, even when you have turned off the function.

Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Activating the generation of error logs for each of your Internet sites will be rather simple if you work with a semi-dedicated server account on our cutting-edge web hosting platform. This requires only one mouse click in the Access/Error Logs section of our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, offered with the semi-dedicated accounts, so you will not need to possess any previous experience with a hosting service. Our system will start collecting the raw data quickly and you could save it to your computer by simply clicking on the Download button, which is situated in the same section of the Control Panel. If you need to use human-readable charts and prepare functionality reports, you could process the downloaded files with some software on your computer. The error log generation may be deactivated just as easily if you don't require reports for your websites.
