An error log is a comprehensive report of the warnings and error messages which site visitors encountered whilst they were looking through your site. This is the raw data 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 overall performance and to increase the users’ total satisfaction. You can find quite a few things in an error log - the time when the error occurred, the exact path to the file which the site visitor could not access, the IP the request came from, and the reason why this request cannot 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 in the correct way by the hosting server, a site access attempt by a blocked IP address, and so forth.

Error Log Viewer in Shared Web Hosting

You can trigger the generation of error logs with ease when you buy a shared web hosting plan from us. A complete section inside the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with the accounts, is dedicated to the logs and switching on this feature requires literally just a mouse click. After you go to this section, you shall see all the hosts which you have in the account, including your domains and subdomains, including the ones that you may have created to test a site prior to it going live. You just have to press the On button for the ones that you want to be closely watched by our system and it will start generating error logs at once. To switch off the feature, you shall just have to click the same button once more. Any error log can be downloaded and saved to your personal computer anytime, even when you have disabled the feature.

Error Log Viewer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to generate error logs for each website that you host within a semi-dedicated server account on our advanced website hosting platform. This function can be enabled via the Hepsia Control Panel. As you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section, you'll simply have to click on the On button for the domain or subdomain that you need, since all the domains/subdomains which you have hosted/created inside the account will be listed there. You may enable the error logs independently for every site, so you shall be able to keep track only of the ones that you'd like. Clicking again on the very same button will deactivate the error log generation. You'll also find a Download link within the same exact section, so you will be able to save the data generated by the server and, when necessary, run it through some software using your laptop to get user-friendly charts and to deal with any potential problems on your Internet site easier.
