An error log is a detailed report of the warnings and error messages that site visitors faced when they were surfing your website. This is the raw data that the web server has gathered and it will help you discover potential issues with your site and fix them in a timely manner, as a way to boost the site’s overall performance and to add to the users’ full satisfaction. You can find many things within an error log - the time when the error appeared, the actual path to the file the visitor couldn't access, the IP the request came from, and the reason why this request could not be processed. There are different reasons for your website visitors to see an error message - a link that leads to a non-existent file, a script page that cannot be processed properly by the web server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, and many others.

After 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 intend to monitor. The button is available for every domain that you have hosted and each subdomain you have set up, so you can get a comprehensive log for each and every one of them independently, so as to be able to check out the websites for problems much easier. A second click on the same button shall turn off the feature, but you will still be able to get the log by clicking on the Download link, which is available inside the very same section.

Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The error log generation is a function which can be enabled with only a click with any of the semi-dedicated server packages which we provide. You can do this from the Access/Error Logs section of the custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which we will give you to manage your account. When you go there, you'll see every single domain and subdomain that you have hosted/created inside the account listed in alphabetical order. Initiating the error logs may be done one at a time for each one of them by clicking on the On button, that is situated on the right-hand side. By simply clicking on the Off button, you can disable the log generation if, for example, you've sorted out the issues on the website or you have transferred it elsewhere. Additionally you can download each of the logs with just 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 which will allow you to spot the most common problems on the Internet site.
