An error log is a listing of the error messages and warnings which appeared for one reason or another while your visitors were surfing around your Internet site. This kind of a log includes raw information on the way the web server has addressed requests in different situations. An error message might appear if, for example, a link leads to a page or a file that's not on the server, if the code on a specific page cannot be processed, if anyone is trying to access the Internet site or its back office using an IP address that's blocked by an .htaccess rule and so forth. The info in the error log includes the IP of the visitor, what error message came out and the root cause for the hosting server to show it, the full path to the file that generated the error and the precise time of the event. Having this data will help you find out if any part of your site has an issue, that you can then clear up. Consequently, your visitors will have a better experience and you'll supercharge the website for optimum performance.
Error Log Viewer in Shared Hosting
You can activate the generation of error logs with ease when you buy a shared hosting package from our company. A whole section in the Hepsia CP, which comes with the accounts, is dedicated to the logs and enabling this feature requires literally just a mouse click. After you navigate to this section, you'll see all the hosts that you have within the account, including your domain names and subdomains, including those that you may have created to test an Internet site prior to it going live. You just have to click on the On button for the ones that you want to be monitored by our system and it'll start generating error logs right away. To switch off the function, you will only have to click the very same button again. Any error log could be downloaded and saved to your laptop or computer at any time, even if you have deactivated the feature.
Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Servers
The error log generation is a feature that may be activated with just a mouse click with each of the semi-dedicated server packages we provide. You can do this through the Access/Error Logs section of the custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which we'll give you to manage the account. When you navigate there, you shall see each domain name and subdomain you have hosted/created in the account listed in alphabetical order. Enabling the error logs can be done separately for every one of them by pressing the On button, which is located on the right-hand side. By clicking on the Off button, you can disable the log generation if, for example, you have fixed the issues on the website or you have migrated it somewhere else. You could also download any of the logs with simply a mouse click and if you have the needed software on your computer, you can process them and get easy-to-read graphs and charts that'll allow you to spot the most common problems on the Internet site.
